I understand the concept of dimensional analysis and what it's used for etc..My question refers to a dimensionally correct or incorrect equation being true or false. Here are the possiblities:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. A dimensionally correct equation may be correct.

2. A dimensionally incorrect equation may be correct.

3. A dimensionally correct equation must be correct.

4. A dimensionally incorrect equation must be wrong.

5. A dimensionally correct equation may be wrong.

I think all but #3 and #4 are true, but I may be wrong. Any takers?
