Solve the following:


Let $x$ and a stand for distance. Is

$\int \frac{d x}{\sqrt{a^{2}-x^{2}}}=\frac{1}{a} \sin ^{-1} \frac{a}{x}$ dimensionally correct?


Dimension of the Integral $=\int \frac{d x}{\sqrt{a^{2}-x^{2}}}=\int \frac{L}{\sqrt{L^{2}-L^{2}}}=L^{0}$. But for $\frac{1}{a} \sin ^{-1} \frac{a}{x}$, the dimension is [L-1]. So this expression is dimensionally incorrect.
