# If the dimension of a physical quantity is given by $[M^aL^bT^c]$ then the physical quantity will be

##### ANSWER

pressure, if a = 1, b =-1, c =-2

##### SOLUTION
Pressure, $P=\dfrac{Force}{Area}=\dfrac{Mass\times Acceleration}{Area}$

$[P]=\dfrac{ML^1T^{-2}}{L^2}=[M^1L^{-1}T^{-2}]=[M^aL^bT^c]$

$a=1\,,b=-1\,,c=-2$
