Not a specific question, but I just need help understanding how units cancel out. v = sqrt(force of tension / mass density) Force of tension is in Newtons. Mass density is in kg/m^3 Nt/ (kg/m^3) = (kg*m/s^2)/(kg/m^3) =(I cross multiply here) (kg*m*m^3)/(s^2*kg) kg cancels out. Remember it is the sqrt of it all. sqrt(m^4/s^2) = m^2/s This does not equal m/s. Is there something I am missing?
