Can be converted to Fahrenheit units by a sharp student.

so the answer is (c) may have a unit. Other definition for dimensionless quantity is scalar quantity

Pi has no unit, just a value and an irrational value at that.

Plancks constant is just a value, no unit, it is just used to convert things that have a dimehnsion, ft, in. grams, degrees, lbs, etc. these are dimensionsal units.

Hmmm... in my physics book, Planck's constant is 6.626...x10^(34) Js , which is with a unit :S

Just picked that out of the dark @Callisto, didn't realize that Plalnck's constant was in some kind of unit. Should of stuck with Pi lol.

in SI units planks constant certainly does have dimensions, , that is why Max Plank devise his own set of units that made it, along with other constants like the gravitational constant and the speed of light dimensionless. i dont like the wording of the options, i would phrase the answer as " a dimensionless quantities has units that cancel out" for example \[\pi=\frac{C[{l}]}{d[l]}=\frac{C[\text{cm}]}{d[\text{cm}]}=\frac{C\cancel{[\text{cm}]}}{d\cancel{[\text{cm}]}}=\frac{C}{d}\]

Yes indeed Plancks constant does have units. I looked up (Google): Planck's constant = 6.626068 × 10^34 m^2 kg / s Thanks UnkleRhaukus for the review.
