numerical value of a quantity | |||

numerical value | |||

Number in the expression of a quantity value, other than any number serving as the reference. | |||

Note 1: | For quantities of dimension one, the reference is a measurement unit which is a number and this is not considered as a part of the numerical quantity value. | ||

Example: | In an amount-of-substance fraction equal to 3 mmol/mol, the numerical quantity value is 3 and the unit is mmol/mol. The unit mmol/mol is numerically equal to 0.001, but this number 0.001 is not part of the numerical quantity value, which remains 3. | ||

Note 2: | For quantities that have a measurement unit (i.e. those other than ordinal quantities), the numerical value^{6 } of a quantity Q is frequently denoted {Q} = Q/[Q], where [Q] denotes the measurement unit. | ||

Example: | For a quantity value of 5.7 kg, the numerical quantity value is {m} = (5.7 kg)/kg = 5.7. The same quantity value can be expressed as 5700 g in which case the numerical quantity value {m} = (5700 g)/g = 5700. | ||
