# Physics – Fundamental Quantities and Units

Fundamental units: The parts of a physical amount that cannot be obtained from each other are called the basic units. For example, in mechanics, meters, kilograms and seconds are the basic units for length, mass and time.

Derived units: The units of other end quantities derived from the base units are called derivative units, such as derivative units like Newton, Pascal, Joule, and Volt, respectively, for force, pressure, function and potential.
Major counting methods are low
c.GS. (CWS) method- In this method, length, mass and time units are centimeters, grams, seconds respectively. It is also called French or Metric method.
M.K.s. (Mc) method – In this method the units of length, mass and time are meter, kilogram, second respectively.
E.P.S. (F.P.) Method- In this method, the units of length, mass and time are feet, feet, seconds respectively, it is also called British method.
S.I. (International system) method – M.K.S. The method is modern, this is called international method. 5.). The method consists of seven basic units and two complementary units.
