They have to be, don't they? Because you add up different powers of the
argument. I took this once as a "heuristic" explanation to myself why
the transcendental functions only work for dimensionless arguments.
On the other hand, the square root can be approximated by a series as
well, and this function does make sense with dimensional arguments.
