### Dyne

A unit of force equal to the force required to accelerate a 1-g mass 1 cm per second per second. Compare with Newton.

(dyn) The unit of force in the obsolete cgs system of units. A dyne is the force required to accelerate a 1 g mass by 1 cm/s per second.

The dyne (symbol `dyn`, from Greek δύναμις (dynamis) meaning power, force) is a unit of force specified in the centimetre-gram-second (CGS) system of units, a predecessor of the modern SI. One dyne is equal to 10 µN (micronewtons), or to 10 nsn (nanosthenes) in the old metre-tonne-second system of units. Equivalently, the dyne is defined.....
