Example - Dimensional Analysis s The period of a simple pendulum, defined as the time for one complete oscillation, is measured in time units and is given by where ℓ is the length of the pendulum and g is the acceleration due to gravity, in units of length divided by time squared. Show that this equation is dimensionally
