Dimensional analysis fail for reaction on simbiology

1 view (last 30 days)
I have already tried adjusting the units of the reactants and parameters, but I still receive an error message. I'm not sure where the issue is.

I attempted to simulate recombinase polymerase amplification, and I have already found the necessary ODEs for simulation.
here is the diagram
here is the reactant's dosage and unit
here is the parameter's unit
here is the ODEs

The first term of the rate rule in the first screenshot you sent (or rate rule #2 in your second post) is not dimensionally consistent with the left-hand side.
You get molarity/time=mole/volume/time for the left-hand side and for the term of the right-hand side:
(dimensionless/dimensionless) * (1/(molarity*time)) * mole * molarity = mole/time

It looks like this was answered in a comment on the question. I'll paste it here for completeness:
