Physics..up for a challange?
posted by Kim .
Determine if the following physical equations are homogeneous
a) P=FV
c)F= mV^2

r
b) F=mV^2 (divided by r(radius)
I assume you mean dimensionally homogenous.
a) Power is work/time or force*distance/time. On the right side, force is velocity is distance/time, so force*distance/time checks.
c)
mass*length/time*length/time / length
mass*length/time^2
but force is mass*acceleration, or mass*length/time^2
O thnx...i actually had a test on it..do you know any good website that explains this?
