From the principle of homogeneity, At3 can be dimensionally written as:
At3 = x
(a) Assume the equation x = At3 + Bt describes the motion of a particular object with x having the dimension of length and t having the dimension of time. Determine the dimensions of the constants A and B. (b) Determine the dimensions of the derivative dx/dt = 3At2 + B
