**Rem**

**Rem (rem)**is a unit in the category of

*Dose equivalent*. It is also known as rems. Rem (rem) has a dimension of L

^{2}T

^{-2}where L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit Sv by multiplying its value by a factor of 0.01.

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 Dose equivalent include Sievert (Sv).
