Have you tried viewing it? Type the expression You fail to create and also all the related expressions. I'll try to check the dimensions.

For example, if H = 3 [m] and a = H/2 then CEL should be: H = 3.0 [m] a = H/2 {no dimension} Your CEL is: a = H/2 [m] means "H is divided by 2 AND by its dimension", that way "a" becomes dimensionless. The same goes for the rest expressions.
