A set of fundamental units is a set of units for physical quantities from which every other unit can be generated.
In the SI system, there are seven fundamental units: kilogram, meter, candela, second, ampere, kelvin and mole.
The symbols, units and abbreviations in SI system were developed and recommended by General conference on Weights and Measures in 1971. This is the standard scheme used for international usage in scientific, technical, industrial and commercial work.
