The table above shows some examples of derived quantities and units expressed in terms of SI base units.

Some quantities are defined as the ratios of two quantities of the same kind, and thus have a dimension expressed by the number one. Examples of such quantities are refractive index, relative permeability, and mass fraction. Other quantities having the unit 1 include "characteristic numbers" like the quantum number and numbers which represent a count, such as a number of molecules and partition function in statistical thermodynamics. All of these quantities are described as being dimensionless, or of dimension one, and have the coherent SI unit 1. Their values are simply expressed as numbers and, in general, the unit 1 is not shown. In a few cases, a special name is given to this unit, mainly to avoid confusion between some compound derived units. This is the case for the radian, steradian and neper.

To use the measurement conversion calculators simply enter a number value into the desired field and click calculate. All results shown will be equivalent values. Values are given to seven significant figures ( the odd result may show 9's or 0's over running). Values of 10 000 or greater will be displayed in the e-format e.g. 2.3456e7 which equals 2.3456 x 10
