The fundamental physical quantities in the SI system includemass, length, and time. Force, being the product of mass and acceleration, is not afundamental quantity.

Counting from left to right and ignoring zeros to the leftof the first nonzero digit, the last significant figure is the first digit that is in doubt.Applying this criterion, the three zeros after the decimal point are not significant figures,but the last zero is significant. Hence, there are four significant figures in this number.

The advantage is that the length measure is always with you. Thedisadvantage is that arm lengths are not uniform; if you wish to purchase a board of 
twoarm lengths
it may be longer or shorter than you wish, or else you may have to physicallygo to the lumberyard to use your own arm as a measure of length.

 (
a
) True. You cannot add
apples to oranges
or a length (distance traveled) to a volume(liters of milk).(
b
) False. The distance traveled is the product of speed (length/time) multiplied by thetime of travel (time).(
c
) True. Multiplying by any conversion factor is equivalent to multiplying by 1.Doing so does not change the value of a quantity; it changes its units.
