## Homework Statement

I have an equation for motion:

x(t) = x(0) + x(0) * k * t[itex]^{1.5}[/itex]

x is in meters and t is in seconds. I have to determine the unit of k.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

x(t) = x(0) + x(0) * k * t[itex]^{1.5}[/itex]

[x(t)] = meters

Therefore, [x(0)] = meters and [x(0) * k * t[itex]^{1.5}[/itex]] = meters

meters * [k] * seconds[itex]^{1.5}[/itex] = meters

meters * (1/seconds[itex]^{1.5}[/itex]) * seconds[itex]^{1.5}[/itex] = meters

Does this mean the the unit of k is 1/seconds[itex]^{1.5}[/itex], 1/seconds, or something completely different?
