The Gaussian system is widely used in theoretical physics. It is often called the absolute symmetrical system. This system is based on three fundamental units: centimeter (cm), gram (g), and second (s). The units for all electromagnetic quantities are derivatives from these fundamental units and they are established using physical relationships between them. Many Gaussian units are not named. The tables presented below show the relationships between the Gaussian System (GS) of units and the International System (SI) of units, which is based on the units of meter (m), kilogram (kg), second (s), and ampere (A).
