Throughout this paper, when derived units with special symbols are expressed in terms of their component base-unit symbols, the exponential form of the latter is used and the order s, m, kg, A, K, mol, and cd is followed.
In particular, it retains the seven base units as given in Table 1 and all 22 of the derived units with special names and symbols, some of which are given in Table 2.
As consequence, the International Bureau of Weights and Measures added to Table 3, SI derived units with special names and symbols, of the authoritative book The International System of Units (28) a new line:
Further derived kinds-of-quantity and derived units may be defined in the conventional manners.
SI derived units
are defined in terms of base units.
Most derived units are as straightforward as the relationship of length to breadth to compute area, [m.
Many derived units can be expressed in more than one form, but professional use usually settles on a single convention.

It is also the time to remember that heat, work and energy are expressed in base or derived units
of joules J using the SI system.
