Dimensional Analysis is a method of problem solving. It is a way to analyze and solve problems using the units, or dimensions, of the measurements. I teach this method to my students at the beginning of the school year as a way to review and reinforce the metric system. Once learned, it is a method of problem solving that will serve them well for the rest of the school year.
This is a 10 problem worksheet on dimensional analysis. There is nothing earth shattering here, just good practice on a concept that many students find difficult. Students who understand the idea of dimensional analysis have far fewer difficulties when they are trying to work stoichiometry problems later in the course. This worksheet can be used as test review, homework, or as a quiz.
Answers are included.
