Here is a collection of
some of the most often used mechanical units. Both SI (metric) and SAE (English) units are given.

There are two fundamental types of units: base units and derived units. Base units include meter, foot, kilogram, second, etc. Derived units involve a combination of base units, such as square meter, kilometer/second, etc.
