e^{mass}. But more likely, there's a constant missing from your formula.

In dimensional analysis, the argument of an exponential must beWhen e is raised to a power with units of mass what is the units of the resulting solution?

Edit: I see that I have been beaten to it.

The unit mass is associated with a numerical value so e^mass can be computed. I just don’t understand what the units would be after the calculation.

What, praty tell, is the unit on the exponent (in its entirety)?I have simplified the example because the actual formula has e raised to multiple units.
