Xidike, Welcome to Physics Forums. طبیعیات فورم پر خوش آمدید.

In Post #2 Member Drakkith suggested the Wikipedia page on “Physical Quantity” and you responded in Post #3 “Yeah, but I can’t understand anything here…”

Now, may I ask you please, did you see the table on that Wikipedia page called “Base quantities”? This table contains the International System of Units.

The seven base quantities of the International System of Quantities and their corresponding SI units and dimensions are listed in the table.

These are the seven physical quantities and dimensions. This is what you asked for in Post #1. What exactly do you not understand? Please ask specific questions by number, like this:
Question 1.:
Question 2.:

Members here on Physics Forums are ready and willing to help you find answers.

Cheers,
Bobbywhy

This is utterly vague. What exactly did you not understand? Unless you are more specific in where you are having a problem in understanding, there's nothing here to prevent people to give you even more stuff that you can't understand. After all, we have no clue on what you are finding difficulties with.

You also cannot be lazy and simply expect to be spoon-fed with information. At some point, you have to put in your own effort in understanding anything. If you cannot understand that Wikipedia page, what CAN you understand?

There is no excuse anymore nowadays to ask a question cold!

Zz.

Does the Dimension of physical quantities mean, the direction of these quantities ????

Does the Dimension of physical quantities mean, the direction of these quantities ????

It basically means that the units I use actually matter. If I were to use a different system of units the values would be completely different. This contrasts to dimensionless quantities with are the same no matter what units you are using. For example Pi is a dimensionless quantity, as no matter what your units you are using to measure the circle, be it inches or meters or whatever, the ratio is still 3.14159.....

Length is a dimensional quantity because the units matter. 1 meter is obviously different than 1 foot, even though both have a value of 1.

Hi it's not so clear what you ask; but here's one more possible answer.

"The dimension of a physical quantity is the combination of the basic physical dimensions (usually length, mass, time, electric current, temperature, amount of substance and luminous intensity) which describe it"
- and then there is an explanation of how to analyse this:
