Units of additonal Variable and its source
 
Hi,

I want to solve for three additonal variables with units of kg^-1, m^2, m^3 respectively

Is it correct for me to define them as specific additonal variables with the same units as above?

I have defined sources for each of the above variables with units of m^-3 sec^-1, kg m^-1 sec^-1 and kg sec^-1 respectively.

Please let me know if I am correct.

Thanks, Gauranga Das.

Dear Gauranga Das,

The units of the additional variable equation are:

[s^-1 m^-3 kg * your variable units]

Therefore, for your first AV, the units for source will be

[s^-1 m^-3 kg kg^-1] = [s^-1 m^-3]

I leave the other ones for you,

Opaque
