[Value of aGal] = [Value of km/s²] * 1.0E+23

[Value of km/s²] = [Value of aGal] / 1.0E+23

##### km/s²(kilometre per second squared)

In the field of acceleration, km/s² (kilometre per second squared) is a unit that represents the rate of change of velocity with respect to time. Essentially, it measures how quickly an object's speed is increasing or decreasing in units of kilometres per second (km/s), for each second that passes. It helps to quantify the force acting upon an object or how fast it accelerates (speeds up) or decelerates (slows down).

For example, if an object's acceleration is 2 km/s², it means that for every second that passes, the object's velocity (speed) is changing by an additional 2 kilometres per second (km/s). In simpler terms, an object's acceleration quantifies how fast it's gaining or losing speed, and the unit km/s² is a common way to represent this value.

##### aGal(attogal)

An attogal (aGal) is a unit of acceleration, mainly used in geophysics and geodesy, to measure the gravitational field strength. It is derived from gal (Galileo), a non-SI unit initially introduced to express Earth's gravitational acceleration.

1 gal (Galileo) is equivalent to 1 centimeter per second squared (1 cm/s²). Attogal is a smaller unit in the Galileo system and is defined as one-quintillionth (10^(-18)) of the gal. So,

1 aGal (attogal) = 10^(-18) gal = 10^(-18) cm/s²

This extremely small unit of acceleration is used to represent variations in the Earth's gravitational field, as well as in precise measurements of gravity and related phenomena such as tidal forces or Earth's crust movements.
