Step 1

a)

Provide the dimensions in the equation F=ma as shown below. help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseF = ma N-kg x m/s2 N N ma is dimensionally homogeneous Hence, F fullscreen
Step 2

b)

Provide the dimensions in the equation F=mV2/R as shown below. help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseV 2 = m F (m/s)' N kg x N kg xm/s N N V2 is dimensionally homogeneous R Hence, F m fullscreen
Step 3

c)

Provide the dimensions in the equation F(t2-t1)=m(V2-V1) as shown bel... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseF(t-1) m(V -) s kg xm/s Ns kg xm/s X X Ns Ns Hence, F(4m(V, - V) is dimensionally homogeneous fullscreen
