Given the quantities a = 6.1 m, b = 9.3 s, c = 64 m/s, what is the value of the quantity

d= a^3/cb^2

I need the numberical answer and the units it would be given in.

Thank you.

and i cant even check the units cause it flags my numberical answer as wrong iv done sig digits and non sig digits just rounding to a really long answer.

the units is meters over m/s times seconds

im not quite sure what that reduces too but i cant chcek what i think it is cause it keeps saying my numberical value is wrong

m/s^2?? maybe - Jan 27th 2010, 11:38 PMHallsofIvy
Then why don't you do what Raoh suggested and tell us exactly what you did and what you think the answer is? Are you using a calculator or doing the arithmetic by hand?
