equation no. 2b is used to calculate acceleration of particles. I am trying to solve it in hypothetical situation and want to know if following parameters taken are correct. (I am looking to get particle acceleration in meters per second)

Unperturbed velocity: some basic assumption in meters per second

Larmor frequency:In angular frequency s

Wave frequency: In angular frequency s

X3 : assumed random number since it is a position along a coordinate axis.

c= speed of light in meters per second

t= time taken for gravity waves to reach particles

Now since α and a are dimensionless, what should I take them as for calculation?
