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

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

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