Voltage V Voltage, electric potential difference, electric pressure or electric tension (formally denoted ∆V or ∆U, but more often simply as V or U, for instance in the context of Ohm's or Kirchhoff's laws) is the difference in electric potential energy between two...
Centigrade °C Celsius, also known as centigrade, is a metric scale and unit of measurement for temperature. As an SI derived unit, it is used by most countries in the world. It is named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701–1744), who developed a similar te...
Metre m The metre (international spelling) or meter (American spelling), (from the Greek noun μέτρον, "measure") is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). The SI unit symbol is m. The metre is defined as the length of the path travelle...
Hertz Hz The hertz (symbol Hz) is the unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI) and is defined as one cycle per second.
URL url A Uniform Resource Locator (URL), colloquially termed a web address, is a reference to a web resource that specifies its location on a computer network and a mechanism for retrieving it. A URL is a specific type of Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), altho...
modulus of elasticity kN/m The modulus of elasticity (also known as the elastic modulus, the tensile modulus, or Young's modulus) is a number that measures an object or substance's resistance to being deformed elastically (i.e., non-permanently) when a force is applied to it.
millimetre mm The millimetre (International spelling as used by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures; SI unit symbol mm) or millimeter (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one thousandth of a metre, which is the SI base uni...
percentage % In mathematics, a percentage is a number or ratio expressed as a fraction of 100. It is often denoted using the percent sign, "%", or the abbreviations "pct.", "pct"; sometimes the abbreviation "pc" is also used. A percentage is a dimensionless number (pu...
density kg/m³ Kilogram per cubic metre is an SI derived unit of density, defined by mass in kilograms divided by volume in cubic metres. The official SI symbolic abbreviation is kg·m−3, or equivalently either kg/m3
Force kN The newton is the International System of Units derived unit of force. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion. See below for the conversion factors. Wikipedia
Revolutions per minute r/min Revolutions per minute (abbreviated rpm, RPM, rev/min, r/min) is a measure of the frequency of rotation, specifically the number of rotations around a fixed axis in one minute. It is used as a measure of rotational speed of a mechanical component.
Kilograms per meter Kg/m Kilograms per meter
kilogram Kg The kilogram (abbreviation, kg) is the Standard International (SI) System of Units unit of mass. It is defined as the mass of a particular international prototype made of platinum-iridium and kept at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures.
kilogram per square metre kg/m² kilogram per square metre
Degree Degree A degree (in full, a degree of arc, arc degree, or arcdegree), usually denoted by ° (the degree symbol), is a measurement of a plane angle, defined so that a full rotation is 360 degrees.
Metres per second. m/s m/s is the abbreviation for metre per second.
Tonnes per hour TPH Measure of tonnes per hour.
kilopascal kPa The pascal (symbol: Pa) is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is defined as one newton per square metre. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.
Joule J The joule (/dʒuːl/); symbol: J), is a derived unit of energy in the International System of Units. It is equal to the energy transferred to (or work done on) an object when a force of one newton acts on that object in the direction of its motion throug...
Kilowatt kW Kilowatt (symbol: kW) is a unit of electric power.
Ampere A a unit of electric current equal to a flow of one coulomb per second.
Ampere kA a unit of electric current equal to a flow of one coulomb per second.
Megapascal MPa The pascal (symbol: Pa) is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It is defined as one newton per square metre. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.
meters per minute. m/min meters per minute.
Tonne tonne The tonne (non-preferred SI derived unit; SI symbol: t), commonly referred to as the metric ton in the United States, is a non-SI metric unit of mass equal to 1,000 kilograms; or one megagram (Mg); it is equivalent to approximately 2,204.6 pounds, 1.102 s...
Newton metre N m The newton metre (also newton-metre, symbol N m or N⋅m) is a unit of torque (also called "moment") in the SI system. One newton metre is equal to the torque resulting from a force of one newton applied perpendicularly to the end of a moment arm that is...
Inertia kg. m² Inertia is the resistance, of any physical object, to any change in its velocity. This includes changes to the object's speed, or direction of motion.
Minute and second of arc arcmin A minute of arc, arcminute (arcmin), arc minute, or minute arc is a unit of angular measurement
Hour Hr An hour (symbol: h; also abbreviated hr.) is a unit of time
Second s The second (symbol: s) is the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI), commonly understood and historically defined as ​1⁄86400 of a day
PIW piw Piw means pounds per inch of belt width and is widely used in the United States of America. The piw figure is indicating the working tension a conveyor belt is intended to be used for, irrespective of the breaking strength of the splice. Usually, the belt...
Bar bar The bar is a metric unit of pressure, but not part of the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as exactly equal to 100,000 Pa (100 kPa), or slightly less than the current average pressure at sea level (approximately 1.013 bar). By the baromet...
Liter Per Hour (l/h) l/h Liter Per Hour (l/h) is a unit in the category of Volume flow rate. It is also known as liters per hour, liter/hour, flowrate, litres per hour, litre/hour, litre per hour, liter/hr, litre/hr, l/hr.
