cGal(centigal)

A centigal (cGal) is a unit of acceleration commonly used in geophysics and geodesy to measure gravitational acceleration or gravity field variations. The term "centigal" is derived from the prefix "centi-" meaning one-hundredth (1/100) and "gal" named in honor of the Italian scientist Galileo Galilei. One centigal (1 cGal) is equal to one-hundredth of a Gal (0.01 Gal), equivalent to 1/100th of 1 cm/s² or 0.01 cm/s² (0.0001 m/s²). It is a non-SI (International System of Units) unit but is commonly used for expressing small gravity field variations and gravitational anomalies on Earth.

dm/min²(decimetre per minute squared)

In the field of acceleration, the unit decimeter per minute squared (dm/min²) is used to express how quickly an object changes its velocity with respect to time, where the rate of change is measured in decimeters per minute per minute.

A decimeter is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one-tenth (1/10) of a meter, and a minute is a unit of time equal to 60 seconds. So, an acceleration of 1 decimeter per minute squared (1 dm/min²) means that the object changes its velocity by 1 decimeter per minute, every minute.

This unit is less common than the SI unit for acceleration, which is meters per second squared (m/s²). However, it can be helpful in specific scenarios and applications where it's more convenient to work with smaller lengths and longer timescales, like slow or gradual processes.
