# Can anyone good at maths or physics, give me quick help asap watch

1. Doing some revision for a physics test here, keep getting confused with this simple bit of math
T = 2pi √((h^2+k^2)/gh))
What is the unit of K?
h= m
g= ms^-2
t= s
2pi = no unit
2. Find an equation for k in terms of the other variables. Then remove all constants and substitute in the units. Then simplify.

I think you can just say that if you are h^2 to k^2 then they need the same units?

Good point.

I never thought dimensional analysis would actually come in useful

I think it's one of the most useful tools in a physicists toolbox! Get ready for lots of it at Cornell.

I have a love/hate relationship, depends on how rigorous I'm feeling that particular day.
