AbstractThe proposed changes to the SI are generating considerable debate and discussion not just in metrology but also in the field of fundamental constants. This is an excellent time to reflect on general topics involving fundamental constants, units and the SI. In particular, it is useful to prepare for some of the obvious questions that will be forthcoming from the general public.
