# Show that 1/2 gt^2 has the same dimensions

Solution

## I am feeling a little difficulty in understanding your question since you didnt complete the last part of question. I assume that you meant as same dimension as that of distance. now; in 1/2 gt^2 , 1/2 is irrelavant dimensionwise. so lets skip that. g has same dimension as that of accelaration . ie m/s^2 = [LT^-2] now ; the dimension of time^2 is [T^2] so overall dimension of 1/2 gt^2 becomes = [ LT^-2 *T^2] ie ; = [L] this is same dimension as that of distance. Hope this helps.
