Units : instruction manuals

In 2018, physicists change the way of defining fundamental units like kilograms or meters. Units can now be defined based on scientific methods using only fundamental constants and well-established theories. No more prototypes, stallions or human references. Here are the 7 new “user manuals” to make these units, downloadable under various formats freely.
