**Radian**: One radian is the angle subtended at the centre of a circle by an arc that is equal in length to the radius. A semicircle consists of π radians and a circle consists of 2 π radians

**Hertz**: One hertz being the unit of frequency is one cycle per second.

**Newton**: One Newton is the force required to produce an acceleration of one metre per second when applied to a mass of one kilogram.

**Pascal**: One Pascal is equal to 1 Newton per square meter.

**Joule**: One Joule as the unit of energy or work is equal to the work done by a force of one newton when its point of application moves one metre in the direction of action of the force.

One Joule as the unit of heat energy is defined as the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius.
