4. Which of the following is not a base unit of the SI measurement system?
A. m
B. s
C. kg
D. A
E. atm
m (meters), s (seconds), kg (kilograms), and A (amperes) are basic SI units.
Atm is not an SI unit; the SI unit for pressure is newtons per meter squared (N/m2) and is called the Pascal
(Pa). One atmosphere is 101.325 Pa.

A. 109
B. 10-6
C. 10-9
D. 106
E. 10-12

24. What temperature is numerically the same in both oC and oF?
A. 0
B. 273
C. -40
D. 212
E. -80
oC = 5/9(oF 32)
A. oC = 5/9(oF 32)
oC = 5/9(o0 32) = -18oC
0o -18o
B. oC = 5/9(oF 32)
oC = 5/9(273 32) = 134oC
273o 134o
C. oC = 5/9(oF 32)
oC = 5/9(-40 32) = -40oC
-40o = -40o
D. oC = 5/9(oF 32)
oC = 5/9(212 32) = 100oC
212o 100o
E. oC = 5/9(oF 32)
oC = 5/9(-80 32) = -62oC
-80o -62o
