nGal(nanogal)

In the field of acceleration, a unit called nGal (nanogal) is used to represent an extremely small acceleration value, specifically associated with the measurement of gravity. It is named after Galileo Galilei, who contributed significantly to our understanding of gravity and motion.

1 nGal (nanogal) is equal to 1 x 10^(-9) Gal or 1 x 10^(-9) cm/s² (centimeters per second squared), where 1 Gal is equivalent to 1 cm/s².

nGal is mainly used in geophysics and geodesy for high-precision measurements related to Earth's gravity field, such as regional gravity differences, geological structures, or studying changes in the Earth's crust. Nanogal measurements are important for scientists to better understand variations in gravity over time and across different regions of the Earth's surface.

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.
