How do you best determine whether j/m2 and m*s2/N are equivalent units? Compare the written form of the units to see if they look the same. Notice that one unit contains joules and other newtons. Determine if the formula that each unit came from are the same. Express them both in terms of SI base units.
Determine if the formula each unit... - choose this
Both should be written in terms of SI base units to be compared. J = kg*m²/s² J/m² = kg/s² N = kg*m/s² m*s²/(kg*m/s²) = s⁴/kg Thus, they are not equivalent.
