SI Unit The system of units used in engineering and science is International system of units, usually abbreviated to SI units, and is based on the metric system. Table 1. SI units may be made larger or smaller by using prefixes which denote multiplication or division by a particular amount. A prefix may be added to a unit to produce a multiple of the original unit. All multiple are integer power of ten.
