If the velocity of the sound in a gas depends on its bulk modulus of B and it's density P derive the relation of velocity of sound by method of dimension

A)
Elastic density of medium = d  = mass / length  = M L⁻³

Coefficient of elasticity E = stress / strain
=  [ M L⁻¹ T⁻²   ]

let velocity v  be =  d^n    E^m

so  L¹ T⁻¹  =  M^(n+m)   L^(- 3 n - m )  T^(- 2m)

equating the powers of corresponding dimensions
n + m = 0        so n = -m.

3 n + m = -1         =>   n = -1/2  and  m = 1/2

SO the formula  is :    v  = K √ (E / d)          where  K is a constant
