Force

N

The newton is the force which, applied to the
mass of 1 kilogram, gives it an acceleration of
1 m/s2

. The hitherto used kilogram-force is
the force of 1 kg mass on a gravitational
basis (standard acceleration).
g = 9.80665 m/s2

Pressure

Pa

The pascal is the pressure produced by a
force of 1 N applied, uniformly distributed,
over an area of 1 m2

.

bar

1 bar = 105

Pa = 105

N/m2

Mechanical

N/mm2

One N/mm2

is the stress exerted by a

stress

force of 1 N from a material cross-section of
1 mm2

.

Dynamic

Pa·s

The pascal second is equal to the dynamic

viscosity

viscosity of a homogeneous fluid in which,
two layers 1 m apart, the top layer is moving
parallel to the bottom layer at a velocity of
1 m/s, and a shearing stress of 1 Pa is requi-
red to maintain this motion.

Kinematic

m2

/s

The square metre/second is equal to the

viscosity

kinematic viscosity of a homogeneous fluid of
1 Pa · s and 1 kg/m3

density.

Energy,

J

The joule is the work done when the point of

work,

application of a force of 1 N is displaced

quantity of heat

through a distance of 1 m in the direction of
the force.

Power

W

The watt is equal to 1 J per second.
