Question 3

A calorie is a unit of heat or energy and it equals about 4.2 J where 1J = 1 kg m^{2}s^{–2}. Suppose we employ a system of units in which the unit of mass equals α kg, the unit of length equals β m, the unit of time is γ s. Show that a calorie has a magnitude 4.2 α^{–1} β^{– 2} γ^{2} in terms of the new units.

Answer

Given that, 1 Calorie=4.2 J = 4.2 Kg m^{2} s^{-2} ...... (i)

As new unit of mass = α Kg

∴ 1 Kg = 1/α new unit of mass

Similarly,

1 m = β^{– 1} new unit of length

1 s = γ^{-1} new unit of time

Putting these values in (i), we get

1 calorie = 4.β (α^{-1} new unit of mass) (β^{– 1} new unit of length)β ( γ^{-1} new unit of time)^{-2}

= 4.β α^{-1} β^{– 2} γ^{2} new unit of energy (Proved)
