Kerma is a unit in the category of Radiation, specific energy. It is also known as kermas. Kerma has a dimension of L2T-2 where L is length, and T is time. It essentially the same as the corresponding standard SI unit Gy.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
Other units in the category of Radiation, specific energy include Gray (Gy), Kilogray (kGy), Megarad (Mrd), and Rad (rd).
