    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    how do i deduce the dimension of the following using dimensional analysis


    Power enthropy, surface charge density, inductance, permitivity, radius of gyration








    tried deducing the dimension of power like this:


    p=work done/time
    work done w= force x distance
    =MLT-2L
    =MLT-2


    substitute for power P= ML-2 T -2/T = ML-2 T -2


    =ML-2 T-3


    anyhelp on how to deduce the others will be appreciated

    Start with the definitions - use the same method as you used for power.
