Electrical Units

This list presents most of the units that you will encounter in electrical engineering applications and literature.

If you know of others that should be added, please send me an e-mail.

Visit NIST for all constants, units, and uncertainties.   This is their Extensive Listing of constants.

Here is a list of electrical constants.
