$Name several repetitive phenomenon occurring in nature which could serve as reasonable time standard.$

$EXAMPLE 1.6Find the dimensions and hence the SI units of coefficient of viscosity \eta in the relation of Stokes law for the drag force F for a spherical object of radius r moving with velocity v given as F=6 \pi \eta rv.$

What are the dimensions and units of gravitational constant G in the formula?\[F=G \frac{\mathbf{m}_{1} \mathbf{m}_{2}}{\mathbf{r}^{2}}\]

$Does dimensional analysis give any information on constant of proportionality that may appear in an algebraic expression? Explain.$

$EXAMPLE 1.4Check the correctness of the relation v=\sqrt{\frac{F \times l}{m}} where V is the speed of transverse wave on a stretched string of tension \mathrm{F} length l and mass \mathrm{m} .$
