Pre release version
Quantities and units - Part 6: Electromagnetism
IEC 80000-6:2022 gives names, symbols, and definitions for quantities and units of electromagnetism. Where appropriate, conversion factors are also given.
This standard is based on classical electromagnetism, i.e. mainly Maxwell’s equations. No reference is made to quantum field theories.
IEC 80000-6:2022 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2008. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- With the new definitions in SI, some previously exact values for quantities now must be determined experimentally while other quantities are given as exact values;
- Item 6-2.2, elementary charge added;
- Item 6-11.4, induced voltage, added;
- Index of entries added;
- Editorial alignment to other parts of the IEC and ISO 80000 series.
