What is a derived quantity give three examples?
Derived quantities are quantities that are calculated from two or more measurements. Many derived quantities are calculated in physical science. Three examples are area, volume, and density.
How many derived quantities are there?
For convenience, certain coherent derived units have been given special names and symbols. There are 22 such units (see Table below).
Derived units with special names and symbols.
|Derived quantity||energy, work, amount of heat|
|SI coherent derived unit||joule|
|m2 kg s–2|
What is a derived unit list an example?
Examples of derived quantities and units
|Name||Symbol||Expression in terms of SI base units|
|joule per square metre||J/m2||kg⋅s−2|
|kilogram square metre||kg⋅m2||m2⋅kg|
|newton metre second per kilogram||N⋅m⋅s/kg||m2⋅s−1|
|watt per steradian||W/sr||m2⋅kg⋅s−3|
What are the examples for basic units and derived units?
The SI derived units for these derived quantities are obtained from these equations and the seven SI base units.
Basic and Derived Units.
|Derived Quantity||Name||Expression in terms of SI units|
|energy, work||joule (J) N-m||m2·kg·s-2|
|electric potential||volt (V)||m2·kg·s-3·A-1|
|current density||ampere per square meter||A/m-2|
