Dimensional analysis y=c^nat^2

  1. Sep 7, 2004 #1
    In the equation y=c^nat^2, in other words... Y equals C to the N power times A times T to the second power, you wish to determine the integer value (1,2,etc.) of the exponent N. The dimensions of Y,A,and T are known. It is also known that C has no dimensions. Can dimensional analysis be used to determine N. Account for your answers, THANKS

    No. If c is dimensionless, then so is c^n, no matter what n is.
