http://www.wwnorton.com/chemistry/tutorials/ch1.htm  click on "1.4 dimensional analysis". it is an interactive program that explains dimensional analysis using animation rather than video in what i thought were very simple terms. also includes several problems you can try your hand at which are not chemistry related but utilize the concepts of dimensional analysis.

0Feb 1, '08 by shangrilaThanks Daytonite for the helpful links. I'm in my second year and they've just introduced dimensional analysis. One more semester after this and they decide to throw us this "curveball!" I've done just fine with my trusted and true ratio and proportion but your links at least give an explanation and comparison. Thanks again!
