Homogeneity of Equation?
Can you please prove that this equation is HomoGenous(Units on the left should be equal to units on the right).
Equation : s=ut+1/2at2
- NCSLv 76 years agoFavorite Answer
LHS: s, distance, has units of length L.
RHS: ut = velocity*time has units of (L/T)(T) = L,
and ½at² = ½ * acceleration * time² has units of (L/T²)(T²) = L.
Therefore the equation is homogeneous.
If you find this helpful, please award Best Answer!

Homogeneity and isotropy are wrt space co-ordinates. In your case you have time. Therefore, the equation is neither homogeneous or isotropic.
