Question

The general equation for a parabola is y=ax^2+bx+c, where a,b, and c are constants. What are the units of each constant if y and x are in meters?

check_circleAnswer
Step 1

Step -1

To find: The unit of constant a, b and c.

Given information: The equation of parabola is : y= ax2+ bx+c

The units of x and y is meter.

Step 2

Expanation:

The equation of parabolawill be valid only if the unit of LHS and the unit ofeach terms on the LHS is same. Means:

units of y ...
