# Quick question help asap Watch

1. I am 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

im thinking k is maybe m^2
im thinking k is maybe m^2
Not quite; you want h and k to have the same units to add their squares together.
3. yeah thats whats I was thinking

k= m
h= m
g= ms^-2
t= s
then the formula would look this in terms of its units
S = √((m^2+m^2) / ms^-2 m))
so S = √((m^2) / ms^-2 m))
then cancel out m so that S = √(1 / s^-2 ))
s = s
Does this look correct?

Yup.
5. great thank v much
great thank v much
No problem.
7. T = 2pi √((h^2+k^2)/gh))
Any ideas
How I would put the formula into y=mx+c ??
T = 2pi √((h^2+k^2)/gh))

Square both sides.
9. Im plotting a graph ht^2 on y-axis and h^2 on x

so is T = 2pi √((h^2+k^2)/gh))
put into y=mx+c
by sqauring both T = 4pi^2 ((h^2+k^2)/gh))
then bring h over for the y axis
ht^2=4pi^2((h^2+k^2)/g))

is that it completely put into y=mx+c

Seperate it like this:

ht^2 = (4pi^2/g) h^2 +4pi^2 k^2/g

So that it's in y = mx + c
11. ah i see, thanks you have been great help
