(b) State TWO (2) systems of SI units.
3. (a) State SEVEN (7) base quantities with symbol of quantities and SI
units.
(b) State FIVE (5) derived quantities with symbol of quantities and SI
units.
4. You are told that the volume of sphere is given by V  d / 4 , where
V is the volume and d is the diameter of the sphere. Is the equation
dimensionally correct?
