F = alpha/beta e -beta x / E . Consider this equation where F is force, x is distance and E is energy. Alpha and beta are constants. What are their dimensions?

Force is in Newtons , dimensional formula is MLT--2   so is alpha/beta

dimensional formula of  alpha/beta is  MLT-2 

beta.x/E shld be dimensionless

dimension of x is L and of E is ML2T-2

dimension of beta is same as of E/x  i.e., MLT-2


dimension of alpha is = M2L2T-4

dimension of beta is  =  MLT-2
