ok so I have no idea what I'm suppose to do or what this question is even asking me...

determine the units of the quanity described by the following combinations of units:

a. kg (m/s)(l/s)

b. (kg/s)(m/s^2)

c. (kg/s) (m/s)^2

d. (kg/s) (m/s)

a. kg (m/s)(l/s)

this is kg m/s^2

which is mass times acceleration

which is force in Newtons

b. this is Newtons/second, beats me

c. kg m/s^2 * m/s

this is force in Newtons times distance/second

which is work per second

which is power in watts

d. looks the same as a to me

In each case, you can just multiply the units together to get the "units" of the answer. You can also rewrite kg m/s^2 as Newtons or kg (m/s)^2 as Joules

1. Is the "l" supposed to be liters? or the number 1?

If liters, then the combination is Newton-liters, or 10^-3 Joule*m^2

2. N/s

3. J/s

4. N
