What are the dimensions of the factor that relates the dimensions of the electric and magnetic fields in
a) the gaussian system of units
b) MKSA system of units
Hint: you need to first determine the dimension of both fields in both systems of units.

I think this deals with the Weber, but I'm kinda lost on it. I'm terrible with units.

Let me know if I need to raise the bid.

Solution Summary

We compute the units (dimensions) of the electric and magnetic fields in both the MKSA and Gaussian systems.

Solution Preview

In both systems, the dimensions of the electric field can be derived from F = qE. Thus, E has the dimensions of force divided by charge, which in the MKSA system of units is [kg] [m] [s]^-2 / ([A] [s]) = [kg] [m] [s]^-3 [A]^-1. In the Gaussian system, the dimensions of ...
