Hi All,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have often heard the term 'non-dimensionalising', and am unsure as to what it really means. I gather that it literally means non dimensionalising the units such that it may be applied to a wider range of situations. My question is, if i have a general linear equation and wish to non dimensionalise it, where should be my starting point? I would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction. Thank you.

=)

cheers,

newstudent
