If an equation is dimensionally correct, does this mean that the equation must be true? If an equation is not dimensionally correct, does this mean that the equation cannot be true?

Does dimension of an equation effects its being true or false?

A dimensionally correct equation need not be true. Example: 1 chimpanzee =2 chimpanzee is dimensionally correct. If an equation is not dimensionally correct, it cannot be correct.
