dimensional consistency says that in any equation the dimensions of the quantities in the rhs and lhs are same.

for example

force =mass*acceleration

force dimensions are MLT-2 : mass dimension M ;acceleration dimension LT-2 togehter the right hand side is also having MLT-2 dimension same as that of force.
