B dimensional analysis

B. Dimensional Analysis

  • The “Factor-Label” Method

    • Units, or “labels” are canceled, or “factored” out


B dimensional analysis1

B. Dimensional Analysis

  • Steps:

    1. Identify starting & ending units.

    2. Line up conversion factors so units cancel.

    3. Multiply all top numbers & divide by each bottom number.

    4. Check units & answer.
