Com­mit­ment to the SI Sys­tem

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - KALEIDOSCOPE -

Uzbek­istan’s Cab­i­net of Min­is­ters has ap­proved the ti­tles and des­ig­na­tion of units of the In­ter­na­tional Sys­tem (SI) used in Uzbek­istan.

Adopted as the ba­sic sys­tem of units by most coun­tries of the world, the

SI sys­tem de­fines the seven ba­sic units of phys­i­cal quan­ti­ties (me­ter, kilo­gram, sec­ond, am­pere, kelvin, mole and can­dela).

Units of val­ues not in­cluded in the In­ter­na­tional Sys­tem, their ti­tle and des­ig­na­tion have been ap­proved for the ap­pli­ca­tion in our coun­try.

For ex­am­ple, the ba­sic unit for mea­sur­ing the mass of the In­ter­na­tional Sys­tem of Units (SI) is kilo­gram (kg), but there are also non­sys­temic ones - ton (t), cent­ner (q), met­ric carat (car) and atomic mass unit (u). The lat­ter can be used when it is im­pos­si­ble or im­prac­ti­cal to in­di­cate the mass in kilo­grams.

The Cab­i­net also ap­proved the rules for writ­ing and ap­ply­ing units and quan­ti­ties. They are manda­tory for use in reg­u­la­tory doc­u­ments in the field of tech­ni­cal reg­u­la­tion, sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal and other pub­li­ca­tions, in­clud­ing pub­li­ca­tions in the me­dia.

The in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion gath­ered 120 par­tic­i­pants from 15 coun­tries - jug­glers, il­lu­sion­ists, clowns, gym­nasts, ac­ro­bats and other arena mas­ters. The jury was headed by Eu­gene Chap­lin, son of the cel­e­brated co­me­dian Char­lie Chap­lin.

Fam­ily trio of Khame­tovs - Kamila, Rus­tam and Daler - spent most of their life cir­cus. The ju­nior mem­ber of the group is not yet 10 years old, but to­gether with his
