Dimensional Formula of Some Physical Quantities

Unit: Units and Measurement

Science | Physics Class 11

Dimensional formula of physical quantity can only be written when its relation with other physical quantities is known. Some of the physical quantities with the dimensional formula are given below:

S.No. | Physical Quantity | Relation with other Physical Quantities | Dimensional formula | SI-Unit |

1. | Area | length × breadth | [L] × [L] = [M^{0}L^{2}T^{0}] | m^{2} |

2. | Volume | length × breadth × height | [L] × [L] × [L] = [M^{0}L^{3}T^{0}] | m^{3} |

3. | Density | kg m^{-3} | ||

4. | Speed or Velocity | m s^{-1} | ||

5. | Acceleration | m s^{-2} | ||

6. | Momentum | mass × velocity | [M] × [L T^{-1}] = [M L T^{-1}] | kg m s^{-1} |
