I know force in base units= kgms^-2
Exactly, so a Newton metre is just that multiplied by another unit of distance.

Tag in the guy with numbers he should know, he's doing a maths degree.
3. Number density will be measured in m^(-3), not kg/m^3.

It is defined as the number of electrons per unit volume.

A number has no units, volume has units of m^3 - hence 1/m^3 = m^(-3)

so kgms^-2*m?

Dw, it's fine Grimm

So number density in base units= m^-3?

Well yeah?

Yes, so simplifying that gives you....
7. (Original post by kingaaran)
Well yeah?
This says otherwise, no?

8. (Original post by Andy98)

kgm^2s^-2?
9. (Original post by hamza772000)
This says otherwise, no?

Those all relate to the mass, number density just relates to the number

Oh, sorry yeah, I failed to recognise the Kg i there so it's m^-3..
11. (Original post by hamza772000)
kgm^2s^-2?
Correct

It's OK dude, we all have our moments

Ok, so one final time pls, 1 N m= kgm^2s^-2, 1nm= 1*10^-9? 1 mN= kgms^-2*10^-3? and 1 MN= kgms^-2*10^6, do these even make sense?

and m^-3

sorry for bothering you too much

Oh, I get it, love you bro thank you sooo much <3
15. 3) Nm is unit of torque derived by Force x distance, force is mass x acceleration so in base units Nm = kgm^2s^-2, nm is a nanometre, mN is a millinewton and MN is meganewton.
4) It is asking for number density so think of it as number of electrons per volume, since number of electrons has no units the base unit for it would just be m^-1.
Hope this helps.

thanks, but it should be m^-3 as it says density, no?
