m/h/s(metre per hour per second)

In the field of acceleration, the unit m/h/s (meter per hour per second) is a non-standard unit used to describe the rate of change of velocity per unit time. Acceleration is the measure of how fast an object's velocity is changing, and it is usually given as meters per second squared (m/s²) in SI units.

To understand m/h/s, let's break it down:

1. Meter (m) represents the unit of distance, describing how far an object has moved.
2. Hour (h) is a unit of time, and it represents the duration of the velocity change.
3. Second (s) is another unit of time, and it represents the duration of the acceleration.

When using m/h/s as a unit for acceleration, it implies the change in velocity (in meters per hour) that occurs every second. To convert m/h/s to the standard unit of m/s², you would need to convert hour to second, which can be done by dividing the value by 3600 (since there are 3600 seconds in an hour).

For example, an acceleration of 3600 m/h/s would be equivalent to 1 m/s², as (3600 m/h) / 3600 = 1 m/s.

However, it's important to note that using m/h/s can create confusion, and it is not a conventional unit for acceleration. The standard unit of m/s² should be preferred as it is consistent with the International System of Units (SI) and widely accepted in scientific and engineering fields.

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.
