The ℞ symbol and the dozen or so other Latin abbreviations embedded in medical customs reflect the unifying function that Latin once played for medicine and for the whole of the scientific and scholarly world. Today the common language of science and medicine is English. explore some of the units, symbols, and names of physics. As well as the amount of interest that the physics community, from high school students at Noble High School (my old high school), to undergraduates and college professors here at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, has in regards to why the names and symbols are what they are. SI Base Units. The name Système International d'Unités (International System of Units) with the international abbreviation SI is a single international language of science and technology first introduced in SI is a coherent system based on the seven independent physical quantities (base units) and derived quantities (derived units).
