# A book with many printing errors contains four different formulas for the displacement y of a particle undergoing a certain periodic motion : (a) y = a sin 2π t/T (b) y = a sin vt (c) y = (a/T) sin t/a (d) y= (a√2) (sin 2πt / T + cos 2πt / T ) (a = maximum displacement of the particle, v = speed of the particle. T = time-period of motion). Rule out the wrong formulas on dimensional grounds. NCERT Solutions for Class 11 Physics Part 1 Chapter 2 Exercise 14

Dimensions:
t :  time  = T
Time period = T
velocity :  L / T
a = displacement = L
y = displacement = L

a)  L = L Sin L/L          this is okay...
b)   L = L sin  L/T * T  = L Sin L    ... this is not alright, as L is not radians.. Argument of Sine function should be in radians and dimensionless.
c)  L = L/T  Sin T/L        not correct
d)   L = L  (Sin  T/T  + Cos  T/T)          this is alright...
