What are the dimentions of k?
What are the dimentions of k for
I completely stuck on this problem. Could someone teach me please?
You can answer only first one. If you can do both of them, I will really appreciate that.

1) k = Force/ displcement
= NEwton / m
= kg m /(s^2 m)
= kg /s^2
so dimensional formula [ M^1 T^-2]
2) k= Force/ Velocity ^n
= kg m s^n
= kg m^(1-n) s^(n-2)
Dimensional Formula [ M^1 L^(1-n) T^(n-1)]
Hope dis helps!

Again...you've got to state what each term stands for...otherwise those are just arbitrary variable names.
