Physics

A physical quantity is measured and the result is expressed as $$nu$$ where $$u$$ is the unit used and $$n$$ is the numerical value. If the result is expressed in various units then


ANSWER

$$n\propto \dfrac {1}{u}$$


SOLUTION
We know, if the unit is increasing then the numerical value is decreasing and if the unit is decreasing then the numerical value is increasing. Hence, $$n\propto \dfrac{1}{u}$$.
