##### in/h/s(inch per hour per second)

In the context of acceleration, the unit inches per hour per second (in/h/s) represents a measure of how quickly an object's velocity is increasing or decreasing. Specifically, it refers to a change in velocity in inches per hour, for every second of time that passes.

Acceleration is the rate at which an object's velocity changes, and it's typically measured in meters per second squared (m/s²) or feet per second squared (ft/s²). However, inches per hour per second (in/h/s) is an alternative and unconventional way to express acceleration.

To break it down:

- 1 inch per hour (in/h) represents a very slow motion, as it takes an hour just to move one inch.

- If the acceleration is given as 1 in/h/s, it means that the object's velocity is increasing by 1 inch per hour for every second that passes.

It is important to note that this is not a widely used unit for acceleration in the scientific or engineering communities, and might cause confusion when communicating with others in the field. Instead, it is recommended to use the standard units like meters per second squared (m/s²) or feet per second squared (ft/s²) for expressing acceleration.

##### 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.
