Dimension of the electric charge

  1. Apr 5, 2004 #1
    could someone told me an experiment that ı can find the dimensions of the electric charge in therms of m, kg, sec
    the answer is kg^(1/2)*m^(3/2)/sn it can be found by assuming the epsilon zero is dimensionless
    please say me an experiment that i can check it :confused: :confused:

    If permittivity is dimensionless, then from Coulomb's law, q^2/r^2 has dimensions of force. That's all you need to prove it.

    Check out Max born's Einsteins's theory of relativity. He uses the cgs. system. e=cm(gm cm)^.5/sec. But what is the square root of a gram centimeter?

    Hello Brian, welcome to Physics Forums.
    Are you aware this thread is over 7 years old?

    Resurrecting old threads without good reason is frowned on.
