While Newton's Second Law often deals with formulas and numerical calculations, there exist one very important nonnumerical
convention that must be appreciated and adhered to. On September 23, 1999, Mars Climate Orbiter--a $125 M space mission--was
lost when a small rocket was fired to adjust entry to the Mars atmosphere. Unfortunately, one operator assumed the thrust value was
given in English units when actually NASA specifications gave it in metric units. This is an example of consequences if the MKS
convention is not precisely honored. What does the MKS convention designates the following?

Answer

The MKS convention or the MKS system of units is a
physical system of measurement that uses meter, kilogram
and second (MKS stands for Meter, Kilgrem, Second) as
base units. It to the basis of the International
system of units (SI).
Meteris mit of length, Kilogram is unit of mass and
Second is unit of time
