Its definitions include (note boldfaced symbols mean quantity is a vector):
|Force||F||newton||N||1 N = 1 kg·m/s2||Unit named after Isaac Newton|
|Moment of force, Torque||M,||N·m||1 N·m = 1 kg·m2/s2||The unit is dimensionally equivalent to the units of energy, the joule; but the joule should not be used as an alternative for the newton metre.|
|Linear momentum||p||kg·m/s or N·s|
|(Linear) impulse||J||N·s or kg·m/s|
|Angular momentum||L||kg·m2/s or N·m·s|
|Mechanical energy, Work||E, W||joule||J||1 J = 1 kg·m2/s2 = 1 Pa·m3 = 1 W·s||Unit named after James Joule. The joule is dimensionally equivalent to the units of torque and moment of force but should be used in preference to the newton metre (N·m).|
|Power||P||watt||W||1 W = 1 J/s = 1 N·m/s = 1 kg·m2/s3||Unit named after James Watt.|
|Pressure||p||pascal||Pa||1 Pa = 1 N / m2 = 1 kg/(m·s2)||Named after Blaise Pascal.|
|Normal stress, Shear stress||pascal||Pa||1 Pa = 1 N / m2 = 1 kg/(m·s2)||Named after Blaise Pascal.|
ISO 80000 or IEC 80000 is an international standard promulgated jointly by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
The standard introduces the International System of Quantities (ISQ). It is a style guide for the use of physical quantities and units of measurement, formulas involving them, and their corresponding units, in scientific and educational documents for worldwide use. In most countries, the notations used in mathematics and science textbooks at schools and universities follow closely the guidelines in this standard.The ISO/IEC 80000 family of standards was completed with the publication of Part 1 in November 2009.ISO 31
ISO 31 (Quantities and units, International Organization for Standardization, 1992) is a deprecated international standard for the use of physical quantities and units of measurement, and formulas involving them, in scientific and educational documents. It is superseded by ISO/IEC 80000.Index of physics articles (I)
The index of physics articles is split into multiple pages due to its size.
