RonL (chuckles) Or you could measure it in the Heaviside-Lorentz system (a subdivision of the SI system) where it would be unitless. Don't say that for your answer, Mac!! -Dan
Thank you all for your helpful responses! CaptainBlack,the answer you gave is more along the lines of what they are looking for. Thanks again!
