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.

zGal(zeptogal)

A zeptogal (zGal) is a unit of acceleration used to express very small gravitational or inertial acceleration values. It is derived from the unit of gal (Gal), named after the famous Italian physicist and astronomer Galileo Galilei, where 1 Gal is equal to 1 centimeter per second squared (1 cm/s²). A zeptogal is a submultiple of a gal based on the metric prefix 'zepto-', denoting a factor of 10 to the power of -21 with negative twenty-first power. So, 1 zGal is equal to 1 x 10^(-21) Gal, which translates to 1 x 10^(-23) meters per second squared (1 x 10^(-23) m/s²).

This unit is particularly useful in fields requiring high precision measurements of extremely small accelerations, such as microgravity research, geophysics, and studies of the Earth's crust movement.

ZGal(zettagal)

A zettagal (ZGal) is a unit of acceleration used in the field of engineering, physics, and various scientific disciplines. It is a non-SI (International System of Units) unit and is derived from the gal (Gal), which is a unit of acceleration named after the famous physicist Galileo Galilei.

One zettagal is equal to 1 x 10^21 gals, where 1 gal is defined as 1 centimeter per second squared (cm/s²). This means that 1 ZGal is equal to 1 x 10^21 cm/s², or 1 x 10^19 meters per second squared (m/s²).

Zettagal, being an extremely large unit, is not commonly used in everyday scientific applications but is rather employed to express very large acceleration values, especially in astrophysics, cosmology, and particle physics.
