Explanation:
Domaine(s) : physique 1 / 1
métrologie
physical unit grandeur physique n. f.
[1969]

Physical quantities, units and universal constants
A physical quantity is a measurable feature, e.g. wavelength, which must have a numerical value, e.g. 8.01 x 10-7 and a unit, e.g. m. A version of the metric system, termed the Système International (SI), is the designated universal classification of units.
(http://www.herts.ac.uk/astro_ub/a_units.html)

Physical Units
Mechanics is the branch of physics in which the basic physical units are developed. The logical sequence is from the description of motion to the causes of motion (forces and torques) and then to the action of forces and torques. The basic mechanical units are those of
MASS, LENGTH AND TIME
All mechanical quantities can be expressed in terms of these three quantities. The standard units are the Systeme Internationale or SI units. The primary SI units for mechanics are the kilogram (mass), the meter (length) and the second (time). However if the units for these quantities in any consistent set of units are denoted by M, L, and T, then the scheme of mechanical relationships can be sketched out.
