(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

-------------Dimension------------------...

distance (x) (L) Acceleration (a) (L)/(T)^2

Time (t)-----> (T) Force (F)-----> (M)(L)/(T)^2

Mass (m)----> (M) Energy (E)-----> (M)(L)^2/(T)^2

Speed (v)-----> (L)/(T)

Is the following equation dimensionally correct?

A) X= 1/2 at^3

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

A) X= 1/2 at^3

[L] = 1/2 [L]/[T]^2 * [T]^3

i know my proff said numbers such as 1/2 don't have dimension but i dont really understand how to solve this....what am i suppsoed 2 do with 1/2
