(a) Suppose the displacement of an object is related to time according to the expression *x* = *Bt*^{2}. What are the dimensions of *B*? (b) A displacement is related to time as *x* = *A* sin (2*πft*), where *A* and *f* are constants. Find the dimensions of *A*. *Hint:* A trigonometric function appearing in an equation must be dimensionless.
