Taking force, length and time to be the fundamental quantities, find the dimensions of momentum.

###### Advertisements

#### Solution

Momentum = *mv* = (force/acceleration) × velocity

\[\text{ Acceleration }= \left[ {LT}^{- 2} \right] \text{ and } \text{ velocity }= \left[ {LT}^{- 1} \right]\]

\[\therefore \left[\text{ Momentum }\right] = \frac{\left[ F \right]}{\left[ {LT}^{- 2} \right]} \times \left[ {LT}^{- 1} \right] = \left[ FT \right]\].
