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

Science Quote

'The strength and weakness of physicists is that we believe in what we can measure. And if we can't measure it, then we say it probably doesn't exist. And that closes us off to an enormous amount of phenomena that we may not be able to measure because they only happened once. For example, the Big Bang. ... That's one reason why they scoffed at higher dimensions for so many years. Now we realize that there's no alternative... '
