Unformatted text preview: dimensions of the variables involved in the problem. Compare this to the exact result, 4 s P R ∆ = In other words, an exact analysis tells us that the constant is equal to 4. However, the relationship between ∆ P , s , and R is known to within a single constant by the process of dimensional analysis. Dimensional analysis is very powerful indeed! Never underestimate the power of dimensional analysis!...
