dyne

 [dīn]
a unit of force, being the amount that when acting continuously upon a mass of 1 g will impart to it an acceleration of 1 cm per second per second. It is equal to 10−5newton.

dyne

(dīn),
The unit of force in the CGS system, replaced in the SI system by the newton (1 N = 105 dynes), that gives a body of 1 g mass an acceleration of 1 cm/sec2; expressed as F (dynes) = m (grams) × a (cm/sec2).
[G. dynamis, force]

dyne

(dīn) a unit of force; the amount that when acting continuously upon a mass of 1 g will impart to it an acceleration of 1 cm per second per second; equal to 10−5newton.

dyne

[dīn]
a unit of force, specifically the force required to accelerate a free mass of 1 g at 1 cm/sec. One dyne equals 10-5 newton.

dyne

the metric unit of force, being that amount which would, during each second, produce an acceleration of 1 cm per second in a particle of 1 gram mass.
