am/h/s(attometre per hour per second)

An attometer per hour per second (am/h/s) is a derived unit for acceleration, which measures the change in speed or velocity over time. In this unit, attometer (10^-18 meters) is the unit of distance, hour is the unit of time, and second is another unit of time.

In an am/h/s, acceleration is expressed as the change in velocity (attometers per hour) that occurs for each second of time elapsed. This unit is, therefore, essentially expressing the change in velocity (displacement/time) over a period of time.

One am/h/s means that the object's velocity is changing at a rate of one attometer per hour for every second of time that passes. This is a very small acceleration since an attometer is an extremely tiny unit of measurement (1 attometer = 10^-18 meters). It is typically used to express extremely small accelerations in scientific and engineering applications.

PGal(petagal)

In the field of acceleration, the unit PGal (petagal) is used to measure acceleration due to gravity or the force with which an object is pulled towards the Earth's surface. It is derived from the more common unit of acceleration: gal, which stands for "Galileo" in honor of Italian physicist and astronomer Galileo Galilei.

1 Gal is equivalent to 1 centimeter per second squared (1 cm/s²), which is the standard acceleration due to gravity at the Earth's surface. A petagal (PGal) is much larger than a gal and is given by:

1 PGal = 10¹⁵ Gal

In other words, 1 petagal is equal to 10¹⁵ centimeters per second squared (10¹⁵ cm/s²). It is an extremely large unit of acceleration and not frequently used in practical applications. It is mainly helpful when describing the gravitational effects in extreme astrophysical scenarios, such as near black holes or massive celestial bodies.

pGal(picogal)

The pGal (picogal) is a unit of acceleration used in geophysics and geodesy, specifically for measurements related to gravity anomalies and earth's gravity field. It stands for picogalileo, named after Galileo Galilei who first described the concept of acceleration.

A pGal is defined as one-trillionth (10^(-12)) of the standard acceleration due to gravity on Earth (g), which is approximately 9.80665 meters per second squared (m/s²). Therefore:

1 pGal = 10^(-12) x 9.80665 m/s² ≈ 9.80665 x 10^(-12) m/s²

This unit is used to express extremely small variations in the Earth's gravitational field, which can be relevant in various scientific disciplines, such as geophysics, earth sciences, and geodesy. These small variations can be caused by changes in mass distribution, density contrasts in the Earth's interior, or even the shape of the Earth. By measuring these variations in gravity, scientists can better understand Earth's structure, properties, and processes.
