内容紹介

Mankind has a fascination with measurement. Down the centuries we have produced a plethora of incompatible and duplicatory systems for measuring everything from the width of an Egyptian pyramid to the concentration of radioactivity near a nuclear reactor and the value of the fine structure constant. With the introduction first of the metric system and of its successor the Système International d'Unités (SI), the scientific community has established a standard method of measurement based on only seven core units.

The Encyclopaedia of Scientific Units, Weights and Measures converts the huge variety of units from all over the world in every period of recorded history into units of the SI. Featuring:
- An A - Z of conversion tables for over 10,000 units of measurements. 
- Tables of the fundamental constants of nature with their units. 
- Listings of professional societies, and national standardization bodies for easy reference.
- An extensive bibliography detailing further reading on the multifarious aspects of measurement and its units.

This huge work is simply a "must have" for any reference library frequented by scientists of any discipline or by those with historical interests in units of measurement such as archaeologists.

レビュー

From the reviews:

"Outstanding Title! … Revised and expanded, this version of Cardarelli's Scientific Unit Conversion (3rd ed., 2002) is a comprehensive list of most scientific units, weights and measures, conversions, and definitions. Providing current and historical units from around the world, this book supplies alphabetically arranged conversion tables for more than 10,000 units of measurement….For archaeologists, historians, mathematicians, and scientists in any field. Summing Up: Essential. All collections."
(D. J. Turner, Choice, November 2003)

"All weights, volumes, powers, areas, field strengths ¿ You name it, it's here ¿ A gem for engineers, scientists, historians, journalists ¿" New Scientist

5つ星のうち 5.0 A wonderful resource 2009/1/23

About five years ago I reviewed a book called "Measure for Measure," by Thomas J. Glover, and gave it 4 stars. In it I said:

"[I] would recommend it with just one reservation.

Unfortunately, the authors were somewhat arbitrary in deciding which units any particular one would be converted to. If I had written this book, I would have included at least the following for each unit: (1) All other units in the SAME system (i. e., if we are talking about a pre-revolutionary French unit of length, all other pre-revolutionary French units of length) and (2) the nearest-sized SI unit. Unfortunately they frequently leave out conversions between units of the same system that would be useful, and often units of the same approximate size are converted to different SI units, making comparisons difficult. (For example, one foot-size unit may be expressed as so many centimeters, while another as such a fraction of a meter.)

Both of these omissions can be circumvented by using a calculator and working with what these authors have chosen to include, but the book would be easier to use if they had done what I would have."

This book gets its fifth star primarily because it has the feature that I said _should_ have been in Glover's book. It is more comprehensive as well. With these factors, if Glover's book got four stars, this book _has_ to get 5. It has everything I loved in Glover's book, without the shortcomings.

The book is not quite perfect; it has three "atomic mass units" listed (based on C-12, O-16, and H-1) but fails to include the old chemical atomic mass unit I grew up with (based on the abundance-weighted average of the oxygen isotopes), but it is so much more comprehensive than any other book that I still have to recommend it as the best.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Excellent reference! 2013/5/29

This is a truly excellent reference and certainly one of the most comprehensive available to date. As a reference work it does not suffer too badly from the one mildly irritating feature...namely the inclusion of so many obsolete units alongside the current usage. Generally this is flagged in the notes but some type of stronger highlighting of the current definitions would have saved a lot of time. For example the 11 definitions for the calorie or the 21 definitions for the gallon (3 of which are current)!

Units are an ever evolving subject, indeed the SI is proposing to change the fundemental definitions of the SI base units again - once specific conditions for adoption can be achieved (especially significant for the kilogram). This volume gives a fascinating and highly usable insight into the history to date as well as current practice.

Highly recommended (if a little pricey).

This is a very complete and comrehensive reference book covering lots of measurements units both contemporary and ancient. I did not even think there could exist one like that having all the necessary info in one place. Fortunately I found this book and it was exactly the one I needed.

remotely interested in this sort of thing.

5つ星のうち 5.0 only conversion reference you will ever need 2001/7/14

Tired of looking through books to find the correct conversion factor to another unit? Well, so was I. Since I deal with international engineering contracts, this book saves a great deal of time. It is extremely well formatted and easy to use. This book not only has the usual units, but also Japanese, and ancient systems as well. You won't need any other book - ever. The author challenges you to find a unit not listed, and send it to him for inclusion in the next edition. That alone should give you an idea of how thorough it is! This is a must for any technical field. Well organized, and well worth the price of the book. A real bargin. Also, fun to read. It gives the approved units for various systems, and states which ones are on the phase-out. Good to know if you are doing technical writing, and need to keep your units within the standards listed.
