Le systeme international d'unites, the international system of units
, 7th ed.
Cloth, $48.00--This most unusual book consists of a 35 page prescript by the editor followed by the text in which the author seeks to show that the International System of Units

The alphabetically-organized listing of 22,000-plus drug products is supplemented with several appendices: standard medical abbreviations, calculations, common systems of weights and measures, approximate practical equivalents, international system of units

A publication from the organization titled the Standard for the Use of the International System of Units
(SI): The Modern Metric System (IEEE/ASTM SI-10-2002) provides information that defines and comments on SI quantities and units used to describe such properties as mass, force, weight, temperature, pressure, angle, moment of inertia, and kinetic energy.
The 2001 Edition of NIST Special Publication 330, The International System of Units
(SI), is now available.
Redefining the kilogram represents more of a tidying up of the international system of units
(SI) than a response to a need for an improved mass standard.
The International System of Units
(SI) is the basis of the units.
In presenting the standards, both the International System of Units
and customary units have been employed.
