ISO – Quantities and units — Part 4: Mechanics
It is a style guide for the use of physical quantities and units of measurementformulas involving them, and their corresponding units, in scientific and educational documents for worldwide use. In most countries, the notations used in mathematics and science textbooks at schools and universities follow closely the guidelines in this standard. The standard currently has 14 parts. The document is under review. It supersedes ISO  and is under review.
The standard includes definitions of sound pressuresound power and sound exposureand their corresponding levels: It has a scope; normative references; names, definitions and symbols; and prefixes for binary multiples. Quantities defined in this standard are:. The Standard also includes definitions for units relating to information technology, such as the erlang symbol Ebit bitoctet obyte Bbaud Bdshannon Shhartley Hart and the natural unit of information nat.
Clause 4 of the Standard defines standard binary prefixes used to denote powers of as 1 kibi-2 mebi-3 gibi-4 uso5 pebi-6 exbi-7 zebi- and 8 yobi. Specifically, its introduction states “The system of quantities, including the relations among the quantities used as the basis of the units of the SI, is named the International System of Quantitiesdenoted ‘ISQ’, in all languages.
The standard includes all SI units but is not limited to only SI units. 8000-4 that form part of the standard but not the SI include the units of information storage bit and byteunits of entropy shannonnatural unit of information and hartleythe erlang a unit of traffic intensity and units of level neper and decibel. The standard includes all SI prefixes as well as the binary prefixes kibi- mebi- gibi- etc.
In the standard, the application of the binary prefixes is not limited to units of information storage. For example, a frequency ten octaves above one hertz, i.

These binary prefixes were standardized first in a addendum to IEC The harmonized IEC The only significant change in IEC is the addition of explicit definitions for some quantities. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs additional citations for verification.
