Physical quantity

A physical quantity is a physical property of a phenomenon, body, or substance, that can be quantified by measurement. A physical quantity can be expressed as the combination of a magnitude expressed by a number – usually a real number – and a unit; for example, (the mass of the neutron), or (the speed of light). Physical quantities are measured as 'nu' where n is the magnitude and u is the unit. For example: A boy measured the length of a room as 3 m. Here 3 is the magnitude and m (metre) is the unit. 3 m can also be written as 300 cm. This shows that n1u1 =n2u2. Almost all matters have quantity.
