Problem 41GP

Which of the following quantities have the dimensions of an acceleration? (a) xt2, (b) v2/x, (c) x/t2, (d)v/t.

Solution 41GP

Step 1 of 1

We have to check which among the given quantities have the dimensions of acceleration.

We can check by applying dimensional analysis to the given quantities.

a.)

=

b.)

=

=

c.)

=

d.)

=

=

Therefore, the quantities (b), (c) and (d) have dimensions of acceleration.
