ciona as unidades CGS com nomes especiais. No campo da mecnica, o siste-

ma de unidades CGS se baseava em trs grandezas de base e suas unidades:
o centmetro, o grama e o segundo. No campo da eletricidade e magnetismo,
as unidades foram tambm expressas em funo dessas trs unidades de base.
Como essas unidades podiam ser expressas de vrias maneiras, vrios sistemas
foram estabelecidos, como, por exemplo, o Sistema CGS Eletrosttico, o Sistema
CGS Eletromagntico e o Sistema CGS de Gauss. Nesses trs ltimos sistemas, o
sistema de grandezas e o sistema de equaes correspondentes so diferentes
daqueles que se utilizam com as unidades SI.

Existem unidades que em termos de SI so determinadas experimentalmente. A
maioria dessas unidades usada especificamente na fsica de alta energia, fsi-
ca atmica e qumica quntica. Na rea mdica existem trs medidas relevantes
que so mostradas na tabela abaixo (Tabela VII);

essas unidades so mencionadas num documento, conveniente indicar sua

Algumas unidades fora do SI continuam a ser empregadas ocasionalmente e po-
dem ser importantes na interpretao de antigos textos cientficos. Essas unida-

- SISTEMA INTERNACIONAL DE UNIDADES -


Em anotaes cientficas para nmeros (exponencial), a multiplicao deve ser
indicada pelo sinal de multiplicao e no por um ponto. Exemplo:
Certo: 345.456 x 10-3 Errado: 345.456 . 10-3

4.3.2 Smbolos de unidades


Smbolos de unidades devem ser em letra romana. Um smbolo deve ser separa-
do do nmero precedente por um espao pequeno.
Smbolos para unidades derivadas
Produtos de smbolos de unidades podem ser representados por um espao pe-
queno ou por um ponto elevado. Smbolos no devem estar perto um do outro
para evitar o risco de confuso entre unidades e prefixos. Exemplos:
Certo: N m ou N m Errado: Nm
Quocientes de smbolos de unidades podem ser representados usando um ele-
mento grfico ou um expoente negativo. Exemplos:
Fonte: INMETRO. Sistema Internacional de Unidades.
Certo: m s-1 ou m s-1 ou m/s Errado: ms-1
4.3 NMEROS E SMBOLOS DE UNIDADES

4.3.1 Nmeros
Nmeros naturais
Nos nmeros naturais de mais de quatro dgitos, os dgitos devem ser agrupados
em grupos de trs, da direita para a esquerda, separados por espaos. Para evitar
possveis confuses com o amplo uso internacional da vrgula para representar o
marcador decimal, o grupo de dgitos no deve ser separado por vrgulas. Exemplo:
Certo: 2 432 333 Errado: 2432222 ou 2,432,333
Nmeros decimais
Para o marcador decimal, o CGPM sanciona o uso de ponto ou vrgula. Apesar
disso, nas publicaes da lngua Inglesa o ponto mais universalmente usado.
Para nmeros decimais menores que 1, o ponto deve ser sempre precedido de
zero. Exemplo:
Certo: 0.457 Errado: .457
