How do you write in scientific notation ?

  1. Jun 9, 2008 #1
    How do you write in scientific notation "the (SI) units of x are..."?
    For example, the SI units of time are seconds. Is there any succinct way I can write this? Maybe it's like this:

    {time} = s

    ?

    I've seen peopel use square brackets to denote "units of"

    v [m/s] = d[m] / t
