Math Problem Solving: What is Dimensional Analysis (DA)? ‘Units conversion’ Like you did in chemistry 4.04 g H2 x 1 mol H2 = 2 mol H2 2.02 g H2 Based on ‘equivalent quantities’ like 1 dozen/12 is equivalent to 12/1 dozen 1 mg/1000 mcg is equivalent to 1000 mcg/1 mg

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
