The International System of Units (SI) defines seven units of measure as a basic set from which all other SI units can be derived. The **SI base units** and their physical quantities are the metre for measurement of length, the kilogram for mass, the second for time, the ampere for electric current, the kelvin for temperature, the candela for luminous intensity, and the mole for amount of substance.

The SI base units form a set of mutually independent dimensions as required by dimensional analysis commonly employed in science and technology.

The names and symbols of SI base units are written in lowercase, except the symbols of those named after a person, which are written with an initial capital letter. For example, the *metre* (US English: *meter*) has the symbol m, but the *kelvin* has symbol K, because it is named after Lord Kelvin and the *ampere* with symbol A is named after André-Marie Ampère.

Other units, such as the litre (US English: *liter*), are formally not part of the SI, but are accepted for use with SI.

Name | Symbol | Measure | Current (2005) formal definition^{[1]} |
Historical origin / justification | Dimension symbol |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

metre | m |
length | "The metre is the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1 ⁄ 792458 of a second." 29917th CGPM (1983, Resolution 1, CR, 97) |
1 ⁄ 10,000,000 of the distance from the Earth's equator to the North Pole measured on the circumference through Paris. | L |

kilogram | kg |
mass | "The kilogram is the unit of mass; it is equal to the mass of the international prototype of the kilogram."3rd CGPM (1901, CR, 70) |
The mass of one litre of water at the temperature of melting ice. A litre is one thousandth of a cubic metre. | M |

second | s |
time | "The second is the duration of 192631770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium 133 atom." 913th CGPM (1967/68, Resolution 1; CR, 103)"This definition refers to a caesium atom at rest at a temperature of 0 K." (Added by CIPM in 1997) |
The day is divided in 24 hours, each hour divided in 60 minutes, each minute divided in 60 seconds. A second is 1 ⁄ (24 × 60 × 60) of the day. |
T |

ampere | A |
electric current | "The ampere is that constant current which, if maintained in two straight parallel conductors of infinite length, of negligible circular cross-section, and placed 1 metre apart in vacuum, would produce between these conductors a force equal to 2 × 10^{−7} newton per metre of length."9th CGPM (1948) |
The original "International Ampere" was defined electrochemically as the current required to deposit 1.118 milligrams of silver per second from a solution of silver nitrate. Compared to the SI ampere, the difference is 0.015%. | I |

kelvin | K |
thermodynamic temperature | "The kelvin, unit of thermodynamic temperature, is the fraction 1 ⁄ of the thermodynamic temperature of the 273.16triple point of water."13th CGPM (1967/68, Resolution 4; CR, 104)"This definition refers to water having the isotopic composition defined exactly by the following amount of substance ratios: 0.000 155 76 mole of ^{2}H per mole of ^{1}H, 0.000 379 9 mole of ^{17}O per mole of ^{16}O, and 0.002 005 2 mole of ^{18}O per mole of ^{16}O."(Added by CIPM in 2005) |
The Celsius scale: the Kelvin scale uses the degree Celsius for its unit increment, but is a thermodynamic scale (0 K is absolute zero). | Θ |

mole | mol |
amount of substance | "1. The mole is the amount of substance of a system which contains as many elementary entities as there are atoms in 0.012 kilogram of carbon 12; its symbol is 'mol'. 2. When the mole is used, the elementary entities must be specified and may be atoms, molecules, ions, electrons, other particles, or specified groups of such particles." |
Atomic weight or molecular weight divided by the molar mass constant, 1 g/mol. | N |

candela | cd |
luminous intensity | "The candela is the luminous intensity, in a given direction, of a source that emits monochromatic radiation of frequency ×10^{12} hertz and that has a radiant intensity in that direction of 1/683 watt per 540steradian."16th CGPM (1979, Resolution 3; CR, 100) |
The candlepower, which is based on the light emitted from a burning candle of standard properties. | J |

The definitions of the base units have been modified several times since the Metre Convention in 1875, and new additions of base units have occurred. Since the redefinition of the metre in 1960, the kilogram is the only unit that is directly defined in terms of a physical artifact, rather than a property of nature. However, the mole, the ampere, and the candela are linked through their definitions to the mass of the platinum–iridium cylinder stored in a vault near Paris.

It has long been an objective in metrology to define the kilogram in terms of a fundamental constant, in the same way that the metre is now defined in terms of the speed of light. The 21st General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM, 1999) placed these efforts on an official footing, and recommended "that national laboratories continue their efforts to refine experiments that link the unit of mass to fundamental or atomic constants with a view to a future redefinition of the kilogram." Two possibilities have attracted particular attention: the Planck constant and the Avogadro constant.

In 2005, the International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM) approved preparation of new definitions for the kilogram, the ampere, and the kelvin and it noted the possibility of a new definition of the mole based on the Avogadro constant.^{[2]} The 23rd CGPM (2007) decided to postpone any formal change until the next General Conference in 2011.^{[3]}

In a note to the CIPM in October 2009,^{[4]} Ian Mills, the President of the CIPM *Consultative Committee - Units (CCU)* catalogued the uncertainties of the fundamental constants of physics according to the current definitions and their values under the proposed new definition. He urged the CIPM to accept the proposed changes in the definition of the *kilogram*, *ampere*, *kelvin*, and *mole* so that they are referenced to the values of the fundamental constants, namely the Planck constant (*h*), the electron charge (*e*), the Boltzmann constant (*k*), and the Avogadro constant (*N*_{A}).^{[5]}
