    I'm feeling a bit lazy, but curious. What experimental results confirm the values assigned for permeability and permittivity [as it relates to c]? I haven't explored the literature very thoroughly, but, have not been altogether satisfied with what little I found. Thanks!

    This constants are just a consequene of the choice of unit system.
