1. If the change in position delta(x) is related to velocity v (w/ units of m/s) in the equation delta(x)=Av, the constant A has which dimension?
2. If a is acceleration (m/s^2), delta(v) is change in velocity (m/s), delta(x) is change in position (m), and delta(t) is the time interval (s), which equation is NOT dimensionally correct?
a. delta(t) = delta(x)/v
b. a = v^2/delta(x)
With number 1, I'm just not really sure. I think the unit for delta(x) is throwing me off a little.
For number 2, I know what it's asking, but I'm not too good at finding dimensionally correct equations. I'm leaning toward d, however. I don't see time getting squared. A little help, please?
on the first deltax has units of meters.
on the second. Put the dang units for each in, and just reduce to see if it matches.
a. s=m/(m/s)= s
duh, those match.
now do the rest
