Mm/s²(megametre per second squared)

The unit Mm/s² (megametre per second squared) is a unit of acceleration in the field of physics. Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity of an object with respect to time, and it is a vector quantity. In this unit, a megametre (Mm) is a unit of distance equivalent to 1,000,000 meters (or 1 million meters), and a second (s) is a unit of time.

Mm/s² means that an object is accelerating at a rate of one megametre (1 million meters) per second, per second. This means that with each successive second, the object's velocity changes by 1 million meters per second. This unit represents very large accelerations and is not commonly encountered in everyday situations but might be used in specific scientific contexts, such as in astrophysics or space exploration.

mm/s²(millimetre per second squared)

The unit mm/s² (millimetre per second squared) is a unit of acceleration in the International System of Units (SI). Acceleration is a measure of how fast an object's velocity changes over time. In the context of acceleration, 1 mm/s² means that the velocity of an object is increasing (or decreasing) by 1 millimetre per second with each passing second.

For example, if an object has an acceleration of 2 mm/s², its velocity will increase by 2 millimetres per second every second. After 1 second, its velocity would have increased by 2 mm/s; after 2 seconds, its velocity would have increased by 4 mm/s, and so on. This unit is commonly used in various fields such as physics, engineering, and transportation to quantify changes in the velocity of objects.

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.
