Physical Quantities

1. A physical quantity is a quantity that can be measured.

2. A physical quantity can be divided into base quantity and derived quantity.

Base Quantities

1. Base quantities are the quantities that are conventionally accepted as

**functionally independent of one another. 2. It is a quantity that cannot be defined in term of other physical quantity.
**

3. The base quantities and its units are as in the table below:

] Derived Quantities A derived quantity is a Physics quantity that is not a base quantity. Standard Form Prefixes Prefixes are the preceding factor used to represent very small and very large physical quantities in SI units. Derived Unit The derived unit is a combination of base units through multiplying and/or dividing them. . It is the quantities which derived from the base quantities through multiplying and/or dividing them.The Base Quantities Quantity Length Mass Time Electric current Thermodynamic temperature Amount of substance Luminous intensity Name of unit metre kilogram second ampere Kelvin mole candela Unit symbol m kg s A K mol cd [Notes: Amount of substance and Luminous intensity are not discussed in SPM physics syllabus.

000000001 or 10-9 Therefore 25nm = 25 x 10-9nm Normal number to Prefixes Example 3 .Conversion of prefixes Prefixes to Normal Number Example 1 The frequency of the radio wave is 350M Hz.000 or 106 Therefore. What is the frequency of the radio wave in Hz? Answer Mega (M) = 1.000. What is the thickness in unit meter? Answer nano (n) = 0. 350MHz = 250 x 106Hz Example 2 The thickness of a film is 25nm.

we divide the number with the value of the prefixes 0.000 W into GW.000 ÷ 109 = 0.500.0.0255 ÷ 10-3 = 25.255 s is equal to how many ms.0255 s = 0. Answer Gega (G) = 1.000 W = 265.500.001 or 10-3 To write a normal number with prefixes. Answer mili (m) = 0.000.000.5 ms Example 4 Convert 265.2655GW Expressing Derived Quantities and Their Units in Terms of Base Quantities and Base Units Solving Problems Involving Conversion of Units Frequenly Asked Question Additional notes [Additional notes content information relates to this topic but may not be in the SPM syllabus] External Links NIST: Physical Quantity Technick Physchem Learn Physics Today Physchem .000 or 109 Therefore 265.500.

Unit: N/kg Symbol: g [edit] Formula .[edit] Gravitational Field A gravitational field as a region in which an object experiences a force due to gravitational attraction [edit] Gravitational Field Strength The gravitational field strength at a point in the gravitational field is the gravitational force acting on a mass of 1 kg placed at that point.

g is the Earth’s gravitational field strength acting on it. When considering a body falling freely. When considering objects at rest.[edit] Gravitational Acceleration The gravitational acceleration is the acceleration of an object due to the pull of the gravitational force. [edit] Weight The weight of an object is defined as the gravitational force acting on the object. Gravitational Field Strength vs. . Gravitational Acceleration [edit] Both the gravitational field strength and gravitational acceleration have the symbol. Unit: Newton (N) [edit] Free Falling Free falling is a motion under force of gravity as the only force acting on the moving object. the g is the gravitational acceleration. g and the same value (10ms-2) on the surface of the earth. The magnitude of gravitational acceleration is taken to be 10ms-2. Unit: ms-2 Symbol: g Important notes: Gravitational acceleration does not depend on the mass of the moving object.

[edit] Falling from high place Acceleration = 10ms-2 Initial velocity = 0 Displacement = high of the location [edit] Launching object upward Acceleration = -10ms-2 Velocity at maximum height = 0 Frequenly Asked Question [edit] Additional notes [edit] [Additional notes content information relates to this topic but may not be in the SPM syllabus] .Practically. free falling can only take place in vacuum.
