Fundamental Physical Constants

Values given below are from the CODATA 1998 recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology of United States (NIST).

Values contain the (uncertainty) in the last two decimal places given in brackets. Values that do not have this uncertainty listed are exact.

For example:
mu= 1.66053873(13) x 10-27 kg
mu= 1.66053873 x 10-27 kg
Uncertainty in mu
