A dimension vector is an association between a quantity kind and a rational number. The quantity kind serves as the basis vector in an abstract vector space, and the rational number is the vector magnitude. The abstract vector space is determined by the chosen set of base quantity kinds for a quantity system.

dimension vector
A dimension is a relationship between a quantity system, a quantity kind of that system, and one or more dimension vectors. There is one dimension vector for each of the system's base quantity kinds. The vector's magnitude determines the exponent of the base dimension for the referenced quantity kind.

Quantities, Units, and Dimensions
QUDT, or the 'Quantity, Unit, Dimension and Types' ontology defines the base classes properties, and restrictions used for modeling physical quantities, units of measure, and their dimensions in various measurement systems. In physics and science, dimensional analysis is a tool to find or check relations among physical quantities by using their dimensions. The dimension of a physical quantity is the combination of the basic physical dimensions (usually mass, length, time, electric charge, and temperature) which describe it; for example, speed has the dimension length / time, and may be measured in meters per second, miles per hour, or other units.
