## Dimensions of angle, specific heat, heat, latent heat, frequency, charge, potential difference, resistance.

What are the dimensions of angle,specific heat,heat,latent heat,frequency,charge,potential difference,resistance?

• Angle does not have any dimension as it is a pure ratio
• Dimensions

## Limitations of Homogenity

“What are the limitations of homogenity?”

The question is acutually”What are the limitations of dimensional analysis?”

The dimensional analysis is based on the principle

## Limitations of Dimensional Analysis

“What are limitations of principle of homogeneity of dimensional analysis?”

The dimensional analysis has the following limitations

1. It fails while using it to derive a relation among physical quantities, if there are more than 3 unknown variables on which a given physical quantity depends
2. It does not tell whether a given Physical quantity is a scalar or a vector.
3. It does not tell us the value of constants involved
4. It does not always tell us the exact FORM of a relation
5. It cannot be used for deriving logarithmic, trigonometric or exponential relations
6. A dimensionally correct equation may not always be the correct relation. (Because there are more than one physical quantity having the same dimensions)
