Force in CGS System
In 1873, the term "dyne" was first suggested for a CGS unit of force. 1 Newton = 105 Dynes.
A vector quantity is force. Force = Mass × Acceleration
A force's magnitude often describes how strong it is. An object's speed may fluctuate in response to the applied force. The SI unit of force is Newton. It bears Isaac Newton, a well-known scientist. The SI unit of energy is the joule. James Prescott Joule, a well-known English scientist, is honored by their name. Weight is measured in pounds.
Types of force
An object's state of motion or dimensions can change as a result of force, a physical cause. Based on their uses, forces can be divided into two categories:
- Contact forces are defined as forces that affect a body directly or indirectly through a medium.
- Non-contact forces are those that operate through voids without coming into physical touch with the body.
What is the unit of force in CGS system? (A) Newton (B) Joule (C) Pound (D) Dyne
Dyne is the CGS system's unit of force. Force is used to changing or is likely to change the status of the rest of a body. Force is a vector quantity where you need magnitude and direction. It is not a scalar quantity.
