Problem 46E

Dimensional Analysis (Section)

(a) The speed of light in a vacuum is 2.998 × 108 m/s. Calculate its speed in miles per hour. (b) The Sears Tower in Chicago is 1454 ft tall. Calculate its height in meters. (c) The Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida has a volume of 3,666,500 m3. Convert this volume to liters and express the result in standard exponential notation. (d) An individual suffering from a high cholesterol level in her blood has 242 mg of cholesterol per 100 mL of blood. If the total blood

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 4

Unit conversion is done with the help of the conversion factor. It is a relation between two units that always remain fixed and connects two units measuring the same quantity such as mass, volume, etc.

(a) The given speed is .

The relation between meters and miles is .

The relation between seconds and hours is .

The conversion of  into  is done as follows:

Hence, the speed of light is .
