HBS compared with HBW
What is BHN?
Why is this article classified in the category of Dimensionless numbers? Is not Brinell hardness a quantity that has the dimension of pressure? Doesn't it follow from the definitions in this article that the unit of BHN, as defined here, is kgf/mm² (in gravitational metric system), and that the unit of HBW is N/mm², which is the same as one megapascal (in SI units)? Both are units of pressure. -FKLS Maybe it is customary to omit its units, but these are what the numbers really mean. (talk) 07:08, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
