kGal(kilogal)

A kilogal (kGal) is a unit of acceleration used in the field of geophysics and engineering to express the acceleration due to Earth's gravity. It is named after the French scientist Galileo Galilei, who made significant contributions to our understanding of motion and gravity. The unit "gal" (short for Galileo) refers to a centimeter per second squared (cm/s²), and 1 kGal is equal to 1,000 gals, which means an acceleration of 1,000 cm/s², or 10 m/s². This unit is commonly used to measure the strength of gravitational fields, or for studying gravitational anomalies over different regions on Earth.

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.
