I was wondering if this formula is dimensionally correct:

v = Square root FX/m divided by mass

v= m/s F= kgm/s^2 X = meters divided by mass (kg)

v = root kgm * m

s^2

------

kg

My half solution:

m/s = root kgm^2

s^2

------

root kg

m/s = m/s root kg

--- the kg cancels

root kg

which leaves me with: m/s = m/s

thus the equation is dimensionally correct(?). I am unsure however if I violated any square root rules. Please help.

It is correct.
