I have found a question that I do not believe is hard, but I don't understand what it is asking. The question is:

"The expression

has the dimension of an area. Find the value of n."

What is a dimension of an area?

This is an example of Dimensional Analysis

Length, Time, Temperature (basically anything described by an SI base unit) is a dimension. The area of something is**Length x Length**so that is it's dimension. - Sep 16th 2011, 01:28 PMHallsofIvyRe: Dimension of an area?
Does the problem say "dimension of an area" or "dimension

**s**of an area".
