Fundamental units are the physical units that cannot be derived from any other units. Example: Length, Mass, Time etc. You cannot derive them from other quantities.
Derived units are the units that can be derived from fundamental units. Example: Unit of speed is a derived unit. It can be derived from fundament units of length and time.
