Physics

The velocity $$v$$ of a particle at time$$ t$$ is given by $$\displaystyle v = at + \frac {b} {t + c} $$ where $$a, b$$ and $$c$$ are constants. The dimensions of $$a, b$$ and $$c$$ are respectively :


Answer & Solution

$$ LT^{-2}\, , L $$ and $$\displaystyle T $$


SOLUTION

According to the principle of dimensional homogenity

Dimension of v = dimension of at  =  dimension of $$\displaystyle  \frac {b} {t +c} $$

Dimension of a =  $$\displaystyle \frac {[v]} {[t]} = \frac {LT^{-2}} {T} = [LT^{-2}] $$

Dimension of b = $$\displaystyle [v] [t] = [LT^{-1}T] = [L] $$ 

Dimension of c = $$\displaystyle  [t] = [T] $$
