**Abstract:**Dimensional analysis is used to show that the shape and velocity distribution of a two-dimensional starting plume when expressed in a dimensionless form is a constant and that the ratio of the velocity of the leading edge to the third power of the flux of density difference times the gravitational constant from the line source is a constant,
