Determine the dimensions of force.

question_icon_small
(a) A fundamental law of motion states that the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the resultant force exerted on the object and inversely proportional to its mass. If the proportionality constant is defined to have no dimensions, determine the dimensions of force. (b) The Newton is the SI unit of force. According to the results for (a), how can you express a force having units of Newton’s using the fundamental Units of mass, length, and time?
