Fundamental constants of general physics, physical units and conversional factors for units and physical formulas are represented. The system of physical units is constructedly combination of CGS (centimeter—gram—second) and ESU (electrostatic units) or EMU (electromagnetic units) and the basic system of physical units is MKSA (meter—kilogram—second—ampere) or International System of Units (SI). Standard atomic weights and the natural occurrence of elements, abundance of stable isotopes in the Earth’s crust and times of half-decay for long-lived radioactive isotopes are given.
