Dear Raja,


The dimentional formula for force is found from the formula F = m*a

Where m is mass of the body and acceleration experiecnced by it.

The dimentional formula of mass is M .

The dimensional formula for acceleration can be calculated from the formula a = (v-u)/t

Where v and u are final and initial velocities of the object and t is the time taken.

So the dimentional fomula for velocity is LT-1 and time is T which implies dimensional formula for a is LT-1*T-1 . thus the dimensional formula for force becomes MLT-2.
