We have four rows that can be combined in various ways to make 3x3 
determinants. From the properties of determinants, the only effect on a 
determinant of switching rows is to change the sign. Hence, only combinations 
of rows, not permutations of rows, are significant. We can therefore f ~ n n ~ ~

different 3rd-order determinants from our dimensional matrix. We must see if any 
of these are not equal to zero. 
From the properties of determinants we know that if any two rows of a 
determinant are identical, the determinant is zero, so it immediately follows that 
any determinant that contains both the first and fourth rows of our dimensional 
matrix will be zero. This eliminates two of our four combinations - the first and 
fourth rows combined with 1) the second row and 2) the third row. 
This leaves us with two determinants to investigate further. One contains 
the first row in combination witb the second and third rows, and the other 
contains the fourth row in combination with the second and third rows. 
However, since the first and fourth rows are identical, these last two determinants 
are identical, leaving only a single determinant to investigate

and so we have a matrix of rank less than three since we have shown all possible 
third-order determinants to be zem. 
We proceed to check second-order determinants. It is easy to find by 
inspection a 2x2 determinant that is not equal to zero, e.g.

so the rank of our dimensional matrix is two, and for this example, the rank of 
the dimensional matrix, 2, is not equal to the number of fundamental 
dimensions, 3. We will obtain, therefore, (4 - 2) = 2 dimensionless groups, not

5.3 Systematic Analysis of Variables 
The proof of Buckingham\u2019s theorem is based on a set of algebraic theorems 
concerned with the class of functions known as dimensional ly 
homogeneous.2o A systematic approach to finding a set of independent 
dimensionless products can be based on this algebraic theory. 
We now develop a systematic way to convert a functional relationship 
among n independent quantities Q1, Q2, ... Qn to one involving (n-r) 
dimensionless products lcl, 1c2, ~ 3 , ... z ~ - ~ , where r is the rank of the 
dimensional matrix of the Q\u2019s

In general, the number of dimensionless products in a complete set is equal to 
the total number of variables minus the maximum number of these variables 
that will not form a dimensionless product (the rank of the dimensional matrix). 
The algorithm to find tbe R'S as follows: 
1) Select the number of fundamental dimensions. 
2) List the Q variables and their dimensions in terms of the 
fundamental dimensions. 
3) Select a subset of the Q variables equal in number to the 
number of fundamental dimensions such that 
none of the selected quantities is dimensionless, 
the set includes all the fundamental dimensions and 
no two variables of the subset have the same dimensions. 
4) The dimensionless products (p's) are found one at a time by 
forming the product of the subset variables each raised to an 
unknown power times one of the remaining Q variables to a 
known power. (This process is repeated n-k times, using all 
the remaining Q variables.) 
5 ) Apply dimensional homogeneity to each of the products 
obtained to determine the unknown exponents. 
Algebraic manipulation of the dimensionless products that does not change 
their number will not destroy the completeness of the set. Thus, a II may be 
replaced by any power of itself, by its product of any other ~t raised to any 
power, or by its product with a numerical constant.

The following table shows a list of possible variables for flow in a pipe. 
Apply the algorithm for obtaining dimensionless groups in each of the five 
fundamental systems of units MLt, FML, FLt, FMt, and FMLt, and show that 
the results obtained are equivalent. Details of the application of the algorithm for 
the FML, FLt, and FMt systems are omitted and left as an exercise in Problem 
5.20. The rank of the dimensional matrix may be shown in each case to be equal 
to the number of fundamental dimensions. The algorithm presented will work for 
systems of four fundamental dimensions as well as three if the dimensional 
conversion factor & is included in the set of Q\u2019s purely as a formal procedure.
