Slope units

  1. Oct 10, 2006 #1
    If I'm finding the slope of the line of average balance mass(g) vs. total mass (g), should the units for slope be grams? or does it not have units? I know it should be g/g but would that cancel out or stay grams? Sorry if that's confusing. Thanks.

    It is dimensionless. It is not incorrect to describe it as grams/grams, however.
