Quantities and units - Part 6: Electromagnetism

IEC 80000-6:2022 gives names, symbols, and definitions for quantities and units of electromagnetism. Where appropriate, conversion factors are also given. International Standard IEC 80000-6 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 25: Quantities and units, and their letter symbols in close cooperation with ISO/TC 12, Quantities and units. This standard is based on classical electromagnetism, i.e. mainly Maxwell’s equations. No reference is made to quantum field theories. IEC 80000-6:2022 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2008. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: 1) With the new definitions in SI, some previously exact values for quantities now must be determined experimentally while other quantities are given as exact values; 2) Item 6-2.2, elementary charge added; 3) Item 6-11.4, induced voltage, added; 4) Index of entries added; 5) Editorial alignment to other parts of the IEC and ISO 80000 series.

Größen und Einheiten - Teil 6: Elektromagnetismus

Grandeurs et unités - Partie 6: Electromagnétisme

L'IEC 80000-6:2022 donne des noms, des symboles et des définitions pour les grandeurs et les unités d'électromagnétisme. Le cas échéant, des facteurs de conversion sont également indiqués. Cette norme est basée sur l'électromagnétisme classique, c'est-à-dire principalement les équations de Maxwell. Aucune référence n'est faite aux théories quantiques des champs. L’IEC 80000-6 a été établie par le comité d'études 25 de l’IEC: Grandeurs et unités, et leurs symboles littéraux, en coopération étroite avec l'ISO/TC 12, Grandeurs et unités. Il s'agit d'une Norme internationale. Cette deuxième édition de l’IEC 80000-6 annule et remplace la première édition parue en 2008. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: 1) avec les nouvelles définitions du SI, certaines valeurs auparavant exactes pour des grandeurs doivent maintenant être déterminées de manière expérimentale, tandis que d'autres grandeurs sont données comme des valeurs exactes; 2) ajout de l’article 6-2.2, charge élémentaire; 3) ajout de l’article 6-11.4, tension induite; 4) ajout d’un index des entrées; 5) alignement rédactionnel sur d'autres parties des séries IEC et ISO 80000.

Veličine in enote - 6. del: Elektromagnetizem (IEC 80000-6:2022)

Standard IEC 80000-6:2022 podaja imena, simbole in definicije za veličine in enote s področja elektromagnetizma. Kadar je primerno, so navedeni tudi pretvorniki (pretvorni dejavniki). Mednarodni standard IEC 80000-6 je pripravil tehnični odbor IEC 25: Veličine in enote ter njihovi črkovni simboli v tesnem sodelovanju z odborom ISO/TC 12, Veličine in enote.
Ta standard temelji na klasičnem elektromagnetizmu, tj. predvsem na Maxwellovih enačbah. Teorije kvantnega polja niso omenjene.
Standard IEC 80000-6:2022 razveljavlja in nadomešča prvo izdajo, objavljeno leta 2008. Ta izdaja je tehnično popravljena izdaja.
Ta izdaja v primerjavi s prejšnjo vključuje naslednje pomembne tehnične spremembe:
1) Zaradi novih definicij v mednarodnem sistemu enot je treba nekatere prejšnje natančne vrednosti za veličine zdaj določiti eksperimentalno, medtem ko so druge veličine podane kot natančne vrednosti.
2) Točki 6-2.2 je bil dodan osnovni naboj.
3) Točki 6-11.4 je bila dodana inducirana napetost.
4) Dodan je bil seznam vnosov.
5) Redakcijska uskladitev z drugimi deli skupin standardov IEC in ISO 80000.
