Planck Constant - Value


See also: New SI definitions

The Planck constant of action has the dimensionality of specific relative angular momentum (areal momentum) or angular momentum's intensity. In SI units, the Planck constant is expressed in joule seconds (J·s) or (N·m·s).

The value of the Planck constant is:

The value of the reduced Planck constant is:

The two digits inside the parentheses denote the standard uncertainty in the last two digits of the value. The figures cited here are the 2010 CODATA recommended values for the constants and their uncertainties. The 2010 CODATA results were made available in June 2011 and represent the best-known, internationally-accepted values for these constants, based on all data available as of 2010. New CODATA figures are scheduled to be published approximately every four years.

Famous quotes containing the word value:

    And those handmade presents that children often bring home from school: They have so much value! The value is that the child put whatever he or she could into making them. The way we parents respond to the giving of such gifts is very important. To the child the gift is really self, and they want so much for their selves to be acceptable, to be loved.
    Fred Rogers (20th century)
