6. B. Dimensional Analysis • The “Factor-Label” Method • Units, or “labels” are canceled, or “factored” out C. Johannesson

7. 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. C. Johannesson

8. B. Dimensional Analysis • Lining up conversion factors: = 1 1 in = 2.54 cm 2.54 cm 2.54 cm 1 = 1 in = 2.54 cm 1 in 1 in C. Johannesson
