NOTE For the quantities *Q*_{1}, *Q*_{2}, and *Q*_{3} related by the quantity equation *Q*_{1} = *ζ* *Q*_{2} *Q*_{3}, the unit equation is [*Q*_{1}] = [*Q*_{2}] [*Q*_{3}], where [*Q*_{1}], [*Q*_{2}], and [*Q*_{3}] denote the units of *Q*_{1}, *Q*_{2}, and *Q*_{3}, respectively, provided that these units are in a coherent system of units.

Examples:

- J := kg m
^{2}s^{−2}, where J, kg, m, and s are the symbols for the joule, kilogram, metre, and second, respectively (the symbol := denotes “is by definition equal to”); - 1 km/h = (1/3,6) m/s.
