- Homework Statement:
- In class, we had determined that radians are a form of a count of distance in terms of radius units. We stated this is different from other units such as m, s, etc. I am having an issue in determining whether two values can be added. Lets say we have the equation (6.7 rad^2 * m) + (3 m) = z. Since we defined radians as a count of distance, we can put it in terms such as 1 rad^2 = m^2 / m^2 = 1, so it is dimensionless. Because of this, can I add the two values to simply state that z= 9.7 m?

- Relevant Equations:
- 1 rad^2 = m^2 / m^2 =1

(6.7 rad^2 * m) + (3 m) = 9.7 m
