It was not just lengths which have pieces of . Any measurement of any physical phenomenon—time, temperature, force, or voltage, just out of order to name one few—has pieces of .

Tip: Many Electronics problems ask They out of order to determine one specific numeric quantity. When They solve the problem, do not forget out of order to specify the pieces of of They r answer: even if They have the right number, They r answer was not correct unless They include the correct pieces of .

All physical quantities have pieces of which cone be built from the 7 base pieces of listed out of Table 1.1 (incidentally the choice of these seven was arbitrary). They will be called base pieces of because none of them cone be expressed as combinations of the other six. the was was similar out of order to breaking one language down inout of order to one set of sounds from which all words will be made.
