ISO 31-5 is the part of "international standard "ISO 31 that defines names and symbols for "quantities and "units related to electricity and magnetism. It is superseded by "ISO 80000-6.

Some of its definitions are below, with values taken from NIST values of the constants:

Name Symbol Definition Value
"Speed of light in vacuum c0 299 792 458 m s−1 299 792 458 m s−1
"Magnetic constant μ0 4π × 10−7 N A−2 12.566 370 614... x 10−7 N A−2
"Electric constant ε0 8.854 187 817... x 10−12 F m−1
"Characteristic impedance of vacuum Z0 μ0 c0 376.730 313 461...Ω
