2.70. CHAPTER 2, PROBLEM 70 207 2.70 Chapter 2, Problem 70 The dimensional quantities and their dimensions are [ h d ]= L, [ d ]= L, [ N ]= 1 T , [ Q ]= L 3 T , [ ν ]= L 2 T , [ g ]= L T 2 There are 6 dimensional quantities and 2 independent dimensions ( L, T ) ,sot h a tth e number of dimensionless groupings is 4. The appropriate dimensional equation is [ h d ]=[ d ] a 1 [ N ] a 2 [ Q ] a 3 [ ν ] a 4 [ g ] a 5 Substituting the dimensions for each quantity yields L = L a 1 T a 2 L 3 a 3 T a 3 L 2 a 4 T a 4 L a 5 T 2 a 5 = L a 1 +3 a 3 +2 a 4 + a 5 T a 2 a 3 a 4 2 a 5 Thus, equating exponents, we arrive at the following two equations: 1= a 1 +3 a 3 +2 a 4 + a 5 0= a 2 a 3 a
