The dyne (symbol dyn, from Greek δύναμις, meaning power, force) is a unit of force specified in the centimeter–gram–second system of units (CGS), a predecessor of the modern SI. One dyne is equal to 10 micronewtons, 10−5 N or to 10 nsn (nanosthenes) in the old meter–tonne–second system of units. Equivalently, the dyne is defined as "the force required to accelerate a mass of one gram at a rate of one centimetre per second squared":

1 dyn = 1 g⋅cm/s2 = 10^−5 kg⋅m/s2 = 10^−5 N.
1 N = 1 kg⋅m/s2 = 105 g⋅cm/s2 = 105 dyn.

Symbol/abbreviation: dyn
Unit of: FORCE
FORCE's base unit: newtons (Derived SI Unit)
In relation to the base unit (newtons), 1 Dynes = 1.0E-5 newtons.
