[Value of am/s²] = [Value of Gal] * 1.0E+16

[Value of Gal] = [Value of am/s²] / 1.0E+16

##### Gal(gal)

A gal, short for Galileo, is a unit of acceleration used in the field of geophysics and engineering, mainly to measure gravitational acceleration or variations in Earth's gravity. It is named in honor of the Italian scientist Galileo Galilei, who made significant contributions to our understanding of gravity and motion.

1 gal is defined as 1 centimeter per second squared (1 cm/s²). In other words, when an object accelerates at a rate of 1 gal, its velocity changes by 1 centimeter per second, every second.

The unit gal is often used when studying Earth's gravity since it allows for measurements to be neatly expressed in whole numbers, making calculations and comparisons more convenient. For example, Earth's average standard gravitational acceleration at sea level is approximately 980 gal.

##### am/s²(attometre per second squared)

In the field of Acceleration, unit am/s² (attometer per second squared) is a derived unit of acceleration in the International System of Units (SI). An attometer is a very small unit of length, equivalent to 10^-18 meters (one quintillionth of a meter), and acceleration, as it's usually measured, is the rate at which an object changes its velocity over time.

So, when we express acceleration in unit am/s², it means that an object is accelerating at a rate of 1 attometer per second squared, which means its velocity is changing by 1 attometer per second for each second that passes. In other words, the object's velocity increases by 1 attometer per second every second, and this unit is used to quantify very small changes in acceleration, which can be related to nano or microscopic phenomena.
