This study is dedicated to the verification of the assumption that the functions obtained in the psychophysical experiment, depending on the system of units chosen to represent the magnitude of physical stimulus.

Keywords: psychophysical scaling, curves of Fechner and Stevens, the Weber’s ratio, measurement of physical stimulus
