The quantities by means of which we describe the laws of physics are called physical quantities. There are two type of physical quantities : Fundamental and derived. Which of the following is a derived quantity?

Options :
  1. Electric Current (ampere)
  2. Thermodynamic Temperature (kelvin)
  3. Luminous Intensity (candela)
  4. None of these
Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 4


Physical quantities which are independent of each other and cannot be further resolved into any other physical quantity are known as fundamental quantities.Electric Current, temperature and luminous intensity all of these units individually combine and form some other units in physics. So none of these is a derived quantity.
