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.

yGal(yoctogal)

The yoctogal (yGal) is a unit used to measure acceleration, which is the rate of change in the velocity of an object. It is a derived unit in the International System of Units (SI), and is based on the unit of acceleration called the gal or galileo, which is defined as 1 centimeter per second squared (1 cm/s²).

One yoctogal (yGal) is equal to 10^-24 gal, meaning that it represents 10^-24 times the acceleration of 1 galileo. This incredibly small unit is typically used under very specific circumstances or scientific contexts, where measurements of tiny accelerations are required.

To provide some context, one gal is approximately equal to 0.01 meters per second squared (0.01 m/s²). Therefore, one yGal, as a unit of acceleration, is equal to 10^-24 cm/s² or 10^-26 m/s².

YGal(yottagal)

Yottagal (YGal) is a unit of acceleration in the field of geophysics, where it is used to express the strength of Earth's gravitational field on a massive scale. The term "unit" in this context signifies a standardized measurement of acceleration.

Yottagal is derived from the gal (Gal or galileo) unit, named after the Italian scientist Galileo Galilei, who made significant advancements in the study of gravity and accelerated motion. One gal is defined as one centimeter per second squared (1 cm/s²), which is a non-SI metric unit still used in the field of geophysics to measure Earth's gravity.

A Yottagal (YGal) is equivalent to 10^24 Gals. This means that 1 YGal is equal to 1 x 10^24 cm/s². Yottagal represents an extremely large amount of acceleration, which is not typically encountered in everyday scenarios but is important in the analysis of astronomical or cosmological phenomena.
