Abstract

IF in a recent letter1 Sir James Henderson uses the word dimensions in its customary sense of relation to the units of length, mass and time, he is arousing false hopes by suggesting the possibility of a discovery of the dimensions of μ0 and K0, for these dimensions, and not merely the numerical values of the quantities, are both completely arbitrary, depending upon the units of measurement which may be selected.
