The copyright holder grants you permission to redistribute this
document freely as a verbatim copy. Furthermore, the copyright
holder permits you to develop any derived work from this document
provided that the following conditions are met.
a) The derived work acknowledges the fact that it is derived from
this document, and maintains a prominent reference in the
work to the original source.
b) The fact that the derived work is not the original OpenMath
document is stated prominently in the derived work. Moreover if
both this document and the derived work are Content Dictionaries
then the derived work must include a different CDName element,
chosen so that it cannot be confused with any works adopted by
the OpenMath Society. In particular, if there is a Content
Dictionary Group whose name is, for example, `math' containing
Content Dictionaries named `math1', `math2' etc., then you should
not name a derived Content Dictionary `mathN' where N is an integer.
However you are free to name it `private_mathN' or some such. This
is because the names `mathN' may be used by the OpenMath Society
for future extensions.
c) The derived work is distributed under terms that allow the
compilation of derived works, but keep paragraphs a) and b)
intact. The simplest way to do this is to distribute the derived
work under the OpenMath license, but this is not a requirement.
If you have questions about this license please contact the OpenMath
society at http://www.openmath.org.

This CD defines symbols which represent basic physical dimensions.
length
constant
This symbol represents the length physical dimension.
area
constant
This symbol represents the area physical dimension.
area = length*length
volume
constant
This symbol represents the volume physical dimension.
volume = length*length*length
speed
constant
This symbol represents the speed physical dimension. It is the size of the
derivative of distance with respect to time.
speed = length/time
displacement
constant
This symbol represents the spatial difference between two points.
The direction of the displacement is taken into account as well as the
distance between the points.
velocity
constant
This symbol represents the velocity physical dimension. It is the
derivative of distance with respect to time.
velocity = displacement/time
speed is the Euclidean norm of velocity
acceleration
constant
This symbol represents the acceleration physical dimension. It is the
second derivative of distance with respect to time.
acceleration = displacement/(time^2)
2
time
constant
This symbol represents the time physical dimension.
Note that the main units for time are defined in the units_time1 CD.
mass
constant
This symbol represents the mass physical dimension.
force
constant
This symbol represents the force physical dimension.
force = mass*length/time^2
2
temperature
constant
This symbol represents the temperature physical dimension.
pressure
constant
This symbol represents the pressure physical dimension.
pressure = force/area
charge
constant
This symbol represents the charge physical dimension.
charge = current/voltage
current
constant
This symbol represents the current physical dimension.
current = voltage*charge
voltage
constant
This symbol represents the voltage physical dimension.
voltage = current/charge
resistance
constant
This symbol represents the resistance physical dimension, it is the
resistance that an electrical circuit has to flow of charge.
resistance = voltage/current
density
constant
This symbol represents the density physical dimension, it is the mass
per unit volume.
density = mass/volume
energy
constant
This symbol represents the energy physical dimension.
energy = mass*length^2/time^2
energy = force*length
2
2
concentration
constant
This symbol represents the concentration physical dimension, it is the
amount of a substance in a volume.
concentration = mass/length^3
3
momentum
constant
This symbol represents the momentum physical dimension, it is mass
times velocity.
momentum = mass*velocity
power
This symbol represents the power physical dimension, it is energy
per time.
power = energy/time
