Gauss (G, Gs) is a unit in the category of Magnetic field strength. This unit is commonly used in the cgs unit system. Gauss (G, Gs) has a dimension of MT-2I-1 where M is mass, T is time, and I is electric current. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit T by multiplying its value by a factor of 0.0001.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
Other units in the category of Magnetic field strength include A.u. of Magnetic Field (a.u.), Gamma (g), Newton Per Ampere Per Meter (N/A-m), and Tesla (T).
