Definition: | mathematical relation between quantities in a given system of quantities, independent of units of measurement
NOTE The general form of a quantity equation is Q_{1}, Q_{2}, ... Q denote different quantities. A simple form of a quantity equation is _{n}Q_{1} = ζ Q_{2} Q_{3}, where ζ is a numerical factor. Examples:
*T*= (1/2)*m**v*^{2}, where*T*is the kinetic energy and*v*the speed of a specified particle of mass*m*;*n*=*I*·*t*/*F*, where*n*is the amount of substance of a univalent component,*I*is the electric current and*t*the duration of the electrolysis, and where*F*is the Faraday constant.
