Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A system of units, used principally in general relativity, in which all quantities that have dimensions involving length, mass, and time are given dimensions of a power of length only. This is equivalent to setting the gravitational constant and the speed of light both equal to unity. See also Gaussian units; Heaviside–Lorentz units; natural units; Planck units.
