(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A clock is placed on a floor covered with lead density [tex]\rho[/tex] and thickness d. Use dimensional analysis to show that increase in gravitational field strength at the clock dueo to the layer of lead is proportional to [tex]Gd\rho[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

to show that [tex]\Delta g = kGd\rho[/tex]

units of [tex]\Delta g = m s^{-2} [/tex]

units of [tex]Gd\rho = m^{3}kg^{-1}s^{-2}kgm^{-3}[/tex]

I don't get why they're not the same.
