A doubt from Dimensional Analysis

What about the correctness about the relation,

st=u+0.5a(2t-1), both dimensionally or any other

 Prakash Adhikari asked

Answer

The equation refers to the displacement in the tth second and hence it should have the dimensions of speed; since it is the displacement in one second.

Under this consideration, the equation is dimensionally and otherwise correct.
