[Value of cGal] = [Value of cm/s²] * 100

[Value of cm/s²] = [Value of cGal] / 100

##### cm/s²(centimetre per second squared)

The unit cm/s² (centimetre per second squared) is a unit of acceleration in the field of physics. Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity with respect to time, and it quantifies how quickly an object's speed or direction is changing. In the context of cm/s², it describes the change in velocity (measured in centimeters per second) for every second that passes.

For example, if an object's acceleration is 20 cm/s², this means that its velocity is increasing by 20 centimeters per second, every second. After 1 second, its velocity would be 20 cm/s; after 2 seconds, its velocity would be 40 cm/s; and so on.

##### 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.
