International System of Base Units (The seven base units):

Time

The second is the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium-133 atom.

Mass

The kilogram is defined as a mass equal to that of the International Prototype Kilogram - a platinum-iridium cylinder which in 1889  replaced the previous platinum protype matching the mass of 1 cubic decimetre of pure water at the temperature of its maximum density (4.0 C/39.2 F)).

Length

The metre was 1960 redefined as 1,650,763.73 wavelengths of the reddish-orange light emitted by the isotope krypton-86. The metre was again redefined in 1983 as the length of the path travelled by light in a vacuum during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second.

Temperature

Since 1960 the temperature scale is based on the triple point of water. The triple point of a substance is the temperature and pressure at which its solid, liquid, and gas forms are in equilibrium. The temperature of 273.16 K (kelvins) was assigned to this point. The freezing point of water was designated as 273.15 K, equalling exactly 0 on the Celsius temperature scale. The Celsius scale has been redefined in terms of Kelvin temperatures, so that now absolute zero, 0 K, is at -273.15 C. As a consequence the freezing and boiling points of water are at present determined as 0 C and 99.974 C respectively.

Ampere

The ampere was defined as the constant electric current that, flowing in two straight parallel conductors of infinite length, of negligible circular cross-section, and placed one metre apart in a vacuum, would produce between these conductors a force equal to 2 10-7 newton per metre of length.

Mole

In 1971 the mole was defined as the amount of substance of a system that contains as many elementary entities—which may be molecules, atoms, ions, and so on—as there are atoms in 0.012 kilogram of carbon-12. This number, known as Avogadro’s Number, is about 6.022 1023.

Light

In 1979 the candela was redefined as the luminous intensity, in a given direction, of a source that emits monochromatic radiation of frequency 540 1012 hertz (cycles per second) and that has a radiant intensity of (1/638) watt per steradian.

International System of Supplementary Units (Two supplementary units):

Radian

The radian is the plane angle between two radii of a circle that cut off on the circumference an arc equal in length to the radius.

Steradian

The steradian is the solid angle that, having its vertex at the centre of a sphere, cuts off an area of the surface of the sphere equal to that of a square with sides of length equal to the radius of the sphere. The radian and the steradian are classed as derived units.
