An equation of motion is given by x=at^2+bt+c where a,b,c are unknown variables. If x=position and t= time, what are dimensions of a,b,c? ?

a has units of acceleration, m/s²
b has units of velocity, m/s
c has units of position, m
m = meters
s = seconds

x is length. All terms should have the dimension of length l. at^2=l, a=l/t^2, bt=l, b=l/t c will have length l.

c = initial position in meters
b = velocity in meters/sec
a = acceleration in meters/sec^2
