Different system of Units for measurement (MKS, CGS,FPS,SI)
MKS-System: In this system, length is measured in Meter (M), mass is measured in Kilogram (K) and time is measured in Second (S)
CGS-System: In this system, length is measured in centimeter (C), mass in gram (G) and time in second (S).
FPS-System: In this system, length is measured in foot (F), mass in pound (P) and time in second (S).
In this system, seven basic and two supplementary units are taken. The fundamental quantities adopted by the SI-units, their units and symbols are given below:
