A unit that relates linear algebra to dimensional analysis. In using this module given a physical system and the factors that influence it students will be able to: 1) find a complete set of dimensionless products for the system; and 2) apply Buckingham's theorem and determine a dimensionally correct equation relating the variables involved in the system.** Table of Contents:1.
