### Dimensional Analysis

• In order to perform dimensional analysis, choose a conversion factor that causes the units you have to cancel and the units you want to remain.
• It is helpful to memorize these conversion factors.
•  Length 12 in = 1 ft 36 in = 1 yd 3 ft = 1 yd 5280 ft = 1 m Weight 16 oz = 1 lb 2000 lb = 1 t Capacity 8 fl oz = 1 cup 2 cups = 1 pt 4 cups = 1 qt 2 pt = 1 qt 4 qt = 1 gal

### Dimensional Analysis

Convert 2.4 miles into feet. Use the conversion factor [(5280 ft)/(1 mi)].
• 2.4 mi ×[(5280 ft)/(1 mi)] =
12,572 ft
Convert 2[3/4] pounds to ounces. Use the conversion factor [(16 oz)/(1 lb)].
• 2[3/4] lb ×[(16 oz)/(1 lb)] =
• [11/4] lb ×[(16 oz)/(1 lb)] =
• [11/1] lb ×[(4 oz)/(1 lb)] =
44 oz
Convert 7.2 cups to fl oz. Use the conversion factor [(8 fl oz)/(1 cup)].
• 7.2 cups ×[(8 fl oz)/(1 cup)] =
57.6 fl oz
Convert 13,400 lb to tons. Use the conversion factor [(2000 lb)/(1 t)].
• 13,400 lb ×[(1 t)/(2000 lb)] =
6.7 t
Find the unit rate for traveling 3,500 miles in 22.5 minutes.
• [(3,500 mi)/(22.5 min)] = [?/(1  min)]
• [(3,500 ÷22.5)/(22.5 ÷22.5)] = [?/1]
[(155.56 mi)/(1 min)]
A group project will require 30 hours of total work in order to be completed. If there are 5 people in the group working on the project at the same time, how long will the project take?
• [(30 hours)/(5 people)] =
6 hours
A scale needs 6 pounds on one side to balance out the other. How many 12-ounce weights will you need to balance the scale?
• 6 lb ×[(16 oz)/(1 lb)] = 96 oz
• 96 oz ÷ 12 oz =
8 weights
A quilt needs to be 6 feet long. How many 4-inch blocks of cloth will you need, length-wise, to make the quilt?
• 6 ft ×[(12 in)/(1 ft)] = 72 in
• 72 in ÷ 4 in =
18 blocks of cloth
[(15 gal)/(1 min)] = ?[pt/s]
• 2 pt = 1 qt
• 4 qt = 1 gal
• 1 min = 60 s
• [(15 gal)/(1 min)] ×[(4 qt)/(1 gal)] ×[(2 pt)/(1 qt)] ×[(1 min)/(60 s)] =
• [(120 pt)/(60 s)] =
[(2 pt)/s]
[(780 in)/(5 s)] = ?[m/days]
• 12 in = 1 ft
5280 ft = 1 m
60 s = 1 min
60 min = 1 hr
24 hr = 1 day
• [(780  in)/(5 s)] ×[(1 ft)/(12 in)] ×[(1 mi)/(5280 ft)] ×[(60 sec)/(1 min)] ×[(60 min)/(1 hr)] ×[(24 hr)/(1  day)] =
• [(67,392,000 m)/(316,800 days)] =
[(212.72 m)/day]

*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
