yd/s²(yard per second squared)

In the field of acceleration, a yard per second squared (yd/s²) is a unit of measurement that represents the rate at which an object's velocity changes in a specific period of time. It describes the change in velocity (speed or direction) experienced by an object per second.

In this unit, "yard" represents the distance and "second squared" denotes the time taken to cover that distance. Thus, yd/s² directly translates to the amount of velocity change (measured in yards per second) that occurs every second.

For example, if an object has an acceleration of 2 yd/s², it means that its velocity is increasing by 2 yards per second every second. This unit is primarily used in non-metric systems, but analogous to meter per second squared (m/s²) in metric systems.

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.
