These are quantities obtained by combination of two or more fundamental quantities and they can be expressed as a product e.g.

Momentum is a product of Mass of a body and its velocity

(i) Momentum = Mass x Velocity

= kg x ms-1

= kgms-1Derived units

or as a quotient e.g.

(ii) Velocity = $$\frac {Distance}{Time}\\ = \frac{m}{s}$$

= ms-1 Derived units
