"pV=(2/3)NKave(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

where p is pressue.v is volume. n is the number of molecules. Kave is the average kinetic energy of each molecule.useing the definitions of P and Kave.

show that pV and Kave are the same dimensions. and that these are the dimensions of work W"

I am just unsure of what this is really asking me to do. Do i use formulas such as

P=F/A and K=1/2m^2 or simple word by word definitions.

any help would be good. thank you.
