Hi,

I have a problem about dimension matchig.

the dimensional relation between the period τ , the pendul length l, and the acceleration of the gravity g takes the form:
[ τ ]=[l^r] [g^s]

Use the fact that the dimendion of τ is [T], that of l is [L], and that of g is [L/T^2] to show that

τ is proportional to (l/g)^(1/2)

I dont get the soltuion right...
Thank you
