    hey all,
    I know this probably isn't the best place to be asking this, but i figure this site is full of smart science students so why not give it a shot...

    so i have a physics exam tomorrow and i know one of the questions is going to be what is the dimensions for thermal conductivity... anyone know?? i know the UNIT is W/m*k (watts per meter per kelvin) but that isn't the dimensions..... if anyone knows, i would really appreciate it. thankssssssssss!!!

    You should try asking this in pre-dent. Dental students don't do much physics.

    The words "units" and "dimensions" can be used interchangably. Your professor's asking for the units of thermal conductivity. The answer is within your question.
