The question of units and dimensions in electricity and magnetism has exercised
a great number of physicists and engineers over the years. This situation is in
marked contrast with the almost universal agreement on the basic units of length
All quantities, whether length or time or force or energy, etc., are expressed if
terms of this one unit and have dimensions which are powers of its dimension.
There is nothing contrived or less fundamental about such a system than one ...
Only when we define other field quantities may it be convenient to insert
dimensional proportionality constants in the definitions in order to adjust the
dimensions and magnitude of these fields relative to the electric field.
Consequently, with no ...
