**Sievert**

**Sievert (Sv)**is a unit in the category of

*Dose equivalent*. It is also known as sieverts. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Sievert (Sv) has a dimension of L

^{2}T

^{-2}where L is length, and T is time. This unit is the standard SI unit in this category.

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 Rem (rem).
