am/min²(attometre per minute squared)

Unit am/min² (attometre per minute squared) is a unit of acceleration used in the scientific field, specifically in Physics. Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity of an object concerning time. In this unit, acceleration is represented in attometres per minute squared, where one attometre (am) is equal to 10^-18 metres, which represents an extremely small distance.

In terms of acceleration, when an object's velocity is increased or decreased by 1 attometre per minute², it means that over the course of one minute, the change in its velocity is 1 attometre per minute with respect to its position. Since the unit involves an extremely small distance (attometres) and relatively larger duration (minutes), it is usually applicable when observing phenomena at highly precise and minute scales, such as in nanotechnology or atomic and subatomic movements.

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.
