PhysicsCollege PhysicsThe displacement of an object moving under uniform acceleration is some function of time and the acceleration. Suppose we write this displacement as s = ka m t n , where k is a dimensionless constant Show by dimensional analysis that this expression is satisfied if m = 1 and n = 2. Can the analysis give the value of k ?BuyFind*arrow_forward*
