I'm working on a question where gas is leaking out of a container from a small pinhole. I have a differential equation dN/dt = (Constants)*N. I solved this to get an exponential. The exponent is that group of constants, which are A/2V*(kT/m)^1/2. Shouldn't the exponent have something to do with time? Because if they don't, the dimensions don't work out. Can anyone clear this up for me?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
