Hi Deepesh,
There are set of independently defined units of measurements that form the basis of system of units. These sets are known as fundamental units. Fundamental units are independent of all other units.
CGS, FPS and MKS are fundamental units. Different fundamental units are used in different countries. All other units which are derived using these units are called derived units.
So, these are fundamental units and can’t be derived.
Hope this helps,
Good luck.
