find the dimensions of constants a,b and c in the relation

Asked by coolameet08 | 24th Feb, 2010, 11:26: AM

Expert Answer:

Since we add at, b/t and c, the three terms, and the equate it to velocity, there dimensions must be the same.

Velocity [M0L1T-1]

Hence dimension of at must be that of velocity, and therefore dimensions of a velocity/time
Therefore, a = [M0L1T-1]/[M0L0T1] = [M0L1T-2]

Similarly b = Velocityxtime

= [M0L1T0]

and c = velocity = [M0L1T-1]
