Why the change?


John Turland – National Physical Laboratory

We all know how to measure things, Kilograms, Metres, Amperes, etc. because all have been defined by scientists. They are known as the SI Units, "Système International" Units, and agreed by all nations. However, some problems have been found leading to their redefinition, becoming effective this year.
