• By Deven Long
2. ### Slide 2 - Dimensional Analysis-

• (also called Factor-Label Method or the Unit Factor Method) is a problem-solving method that uses the fact that any number or expression can be multiplied by one without changing its value. It is a useful technique.
3. ### Slide 4 - Steps to dimensional analysis.

• Figure out what you are converting. (Today it will be 2 years-> s
• Create a graph that has a line separating the top and bottom.
• We will begin with years so we want years to cancel out, and to do that we have to cross it off with another year factor.
• So now we have two years cancelled out with one year (Two years on top and one year on bottom). Then you ask, “What is equal to 1 year?” 365 days (365 days will go over 1 year on the graph).
• You continue with this process until you get to seconds.
• Once you get to seconds. You will multiply all of the top numbers on the graph and multiply it by the bottom.
