Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Samira, Dimensional analysis is a strategy of problem solving where you solve a problem by keeping track of the units of the different components. So if someone said, you have 10g of a material of density 0.5g/ml, what is the volume? You have to convert g to ml. So you set it up: ?ml = 10 g x 1 ml/0.5g the g units cancel out leaving you the answer in ml.
