The International System of Units (SI) The recommended practical system of units of measurement is the International System of Units (Système International d'Unités), with the international abbreviation 20 May all SI units are defined in terms of constants that describe the natural world. This book tells year story of how humankind evolved from a scattering of hunter-gatherer bands to todays highly integrated global international political economy.

It traces the evolution of ever-wider economic, societal and military-political international systems, and the interplaybetween these systems and the tribes, city states, empires, and modern states into which humans have.

The SI includes seven base units and many derived units defined as products of powers of the base units. The seven base units were chosen for historical reasons, and are by convention, regarded as dimensionally independent: the metre, the kilogram, the second.

Base units in the American engineering system are the foot (ft) for length, the pound-mass (lb m) for weight, and seconds for time. Multiple units are defined as multiples or fractions of base units. For example a meter is a base unit, but a millimeter is a multiple unit. Commonly used prefixes for multiple units are given for SI in Table 2.

The whole body of high-quality experimental data on liquid and vapor water has been faithfully represented by a single fundamental equation from which all thermodynamic properties can ve calculated for any state.
