Lecture# Dimensional Analysis: Gravitational Constant

Description

This lecture focuses on correcting exercise 3 of series 1, which deals with dimensional analysis, a useful tool in physics. The instructor explains the importance of dimensions and units in physical quantities, using the gravitational constant G as an example. Through isolating G in the equation for gravitational force, the dimensional analysis is performed step by step, highlighting the dimensions and units involved. The lecture concludes with a reminder to be cautious with the distinction between dimensions and units, emphasizing the significance of correctly interpreting symbols in physics.
