Balancing units in size-energy relationship

  1. Jan 22, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Can someone help me balance the units in these equations? They are statistical best fits for product size - energy relationships.

    2. Relevant equations
    1. P80 = Cl + W*Sl
    With units substituted into equation: micron = micron + kWh/t * Sl

    2. P80 = Cp * W^Sp
    With units substituted into equation: micron = micron * kWh/t^Sp

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Sl = micron*t/kWh (correct me if I'm wrong)

    Sp is where I get properly lost. I have assumed Cl and Cp are in micron as they are the constants in the best fit statistical relationship representing the intersect with the y-axis (microns) where x = 0 (kWh/t = 0).
