Conclusion

In the dimensional analysis lab several tests were performed and there results were converted into other units. There were five tests performed in all. Each test was different. In one test we measured jump length in centimeters then converted it in order to find out the amount of time to jump one mile. These were all good practice for something we made need in the future
