- To determine the quantity/value/amount of the selected physical quantity (e.g. mass), we need
**a standard definition of the unit**relative to which we compare quantities. We call this standard**a unit of measure**. - Theoretically, there is freedom in the selection of units of measurement, but for practical reasons, they are chosen in such a way that the usage of them is practical and easy.
- In order to standardize, units of measurement are grouped in the so-called
**measurement unit systems**. Currently, in most regions of the world, the applicable unit of measurement system is**SI system**. - An example of a unit of measure is a kilogram. When making a mass measurement, we determine
**how many times heavier**or**how many times lighter**the**examined body is relative to the prototype body with known mass of 1kg**. Perhaps the most direct example of such a measurement is the use of a weighing scale, where we place the examined object on one side and prototype weight on another. - In the case of a kilogram, the unit of measure is defined by a physically existing object, but this is not always possible. For example, one second is defined as a time equal to 9 192 631 770 periods corresponding to the transition between two levels F=3 and F=4 basic state S
_{1/2}of atom ces^{133}Cs.
