public abstract class DerivedUnit
extends Unit

This abstract class identifies derived units. These are units that are formed as products of powers of the base units according to the algebraic relations linking the quantities concerned. The names and symbols of some units thus formed in terms of base units may be replaced by special names and symbols which can themselves be used to form expressions and symbols for other derived units.
