## Homework Statement

Calculate basic dimensions of power using MLT notation.

**2. Given information:**

E= P*t

E= .5*mass*velocity^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

Rearranging E=Pt to P=E/t

a) P = (.5 mass * velocity^2) / seconds * seconds^2

b) P = (.5 kg * metres^2) / seconds^3

c) moving to one line: .5 kg * metres^2 * seconds ^-3

However I know I have the .5 component wrong. It should not be there. Can someone please point out where I have gone wrong ?

Thanks for any help.
