What are dimensions of α, the coefficient of linear expansion? Does the value of ∝ depend on the unit of length used? When Fahrenheit degrees are used instead of Celsius degrees as the unit of temperature change, does the numerical value of ∝ change? If so, how? If not, prove it.

Coefficient of liear expansion id a function of material property that veries according to material to material.....
Its dimensional formula is M0L0T0K-1
Dilensional formula should be in in fundamantal quantities, so Kelvin should be included...
