MathCad - Formule interprete


in the attachment you see what my problem is. I've got a formula and it calculated something to the power of 1.667. But instead if taking units to the power it should only take the number to the power of.

Hoe do I have to change this that it only takes the number to the power of ... and not include the units.

RE: MathCad - Formule interprete

m2*m2=m4 - nothing will change that, so Mathcad does the right thing. If you didn't expect this, check the units of your variables.

RE: MathCad - Formule interprete

(m^6/m)^1/3 = m^1.667

Empirical formulas and the like are annoying that way.  You need to divide out the units first, and then add in the units afterwards.

One benefit of correctly normalizing the units in an empirical formula is that it will then be applicable to other unit systems as well.
