1. Its very good.But more dimensional formulae required like Tension and many more…

2. very very good

3. all the dimensional formulas are available in the columns and it is very easy to accomodate them

4. it is very good but i need de dimensional formula of permeability of free space

5. Basheer Bhai

but i also needed that of tension

6. rujuta satta

more dm should b there!!!!!!!!!!!!!

7. lina

dimensional formulas like planck’s constant etc are not available

8. well i expected man more dimensional formulas!

9. Yoz

Good work yaar..
but we need more dimensional formulas….

11. JAsHAn MAan

Gud1,,, BT MOre D.Fs SHud BE Dea,,, Sm r MissINg,, Tnx

12. very good but need more dimensional formulas (umer sn)

13. hum kya chahatay aazadi jis kashmir ko khoon se sencha wo kashmir hamara hai.

14. its really a very good table.

15. mariya maleka

it was very helpful to us but not up 2 the mark

16. aqsa

its nice

17. chand

I am with an I.Com background and now is studing IT Physics and facing a lot of problems in first semester.I was in need of Dimentions of SI units for average learning but reading the table above I have knewed extra ordinary information about dimentions.Thank you very much for this help!!!

18. Milan

I m now studing in class 11 & i m facing lots of problem in physics.

19. haleemah shehu

Wow!!,it really helped with my homework.

20. vivek

sir plz check about the dimensional formula of angular momentum and angular impulse, i hav a doubt wid d gvn infrmtn.

21. Ashish

This is osem. This table help me lot.i

mashALLAH
very very good excelent

23. gyaunnrraje

Name few physical quantities whose dimensional formula’s you want to know.

24. nitesh

here the dimensional formula of density is incorrect as it should be l-3……………..kindly make the changes …..

25. Sudha

It was really very helpful, but i don’t understand the Planck’s constant, can you tell the derivation, I always end up with [M L^2 T^-3]… how does it become T^-1 ? I have a test on monday, please help ! Also I have the same problem with Coefficient of Viscocity, I get M^1 L^-1 T^-3 ! instead of T^-1. Is there some specific reason for this ? :(

26. gyaunnrraje

We can derive dimensional formulas of physical quantities from their units also.Hence, the unit of plank’s constant is Joule-sec ,Joule(Unit of Energy) – D.F is ML^2T^-2 and sec(Unit of time) – D.F is T . If we multiply these two (ML^2T^-2)(T)= ML^2T^-1.Similarly Coefficient of viscosity = . D.F of Stress is M L ^-1 T^-2 and D.F of Velocity is reciprocal of time i.e T^-1.Therefore D.F Of Coefficient of viscosity=(M L ^-1 T^-2)/( T^-1)=M L ^-1 T^-1.Hope this clarifies your doubt.

27. Sudha

:) thank u soo much. i scored full marks in my test !

28. Gulnawaz

Nice they are very helpful thanks

29. jahnavichowdary

yeah its very helpful but i think explanation should be there……………..:-)

[L][M][T-2][A-2] IS DIMENSION FOR PERMEABILITY OF FREE SPACE
HERE
T-2 =PER TIME SQUARE AND SAME FOR A

31. gyaunnrraje

Sorry,I am unable to understand your question.

EXCELLENT CLLECTION OF UNITS ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,AND THE GOOD THING IS THAT THE ORGANISER OF THIS TABLE LISTENS TO SHORTCOMINGS AND IMPROVES THIS TABLE

33. TUSHAR

it is nicely arranged but some of the formulaes are missing but these formulaes are enough for +1

34. It’s very good and I think it sufficiet to get more DF’s. (D.K.)
