Merge from other templates[edit]

This template was created from Template:SI derived units and Template:SI base units as they had substantial overlap; they were both also fairly small; so I have merged them. I think having all the SI related units in one place will be more useful. David Hollman (Talk) 19:47, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Capitals[edit]

Isn't it is true to using capitals in units like Newton, Kelvin, etc.? Hddty. (talk) 02:36, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

The names are explicitly not capitalised so that they will not be confused in-text with the scientists they are named after. The symbols for the units can however be capitalised, depending on the unit. "m" for metre is never capitalised, whereas "V" for volt always is (as seen with the emphasis of contrast in the symbol for the derived unit electron volt, "eV"). Prefices also have their own capitalisations: mega (×10^6) and milli (×10^-3) are differentiated by case as "M" and "m" respectively (hence millimetre, "mm", and megametre, "Mm").
