Dyne Definition and Usage

The dyne is the force needed to move one gram of mass at a rate of one centimeter per second squared.

The dyne is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) unit of force. Dynes can be abbreviated as dyn, for example 1 dyne can be written as 1 dyn.

Dynes can be expressed using the formula: 1 dyn = 1 gcms2
