Dyne-Centimeter (dyn-cm) is a unit in the category of Moment, Torque. It is also known as dyne centimeter, dyne centimetre, cm-dyn, cm dyn. This unit is commonly used in the cgs unit system. Dyne-Centimeter (dyn-cm) has a dimension of ML2T-2 where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit N-m by multiplying its value by a factor of 1E-007.

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 Moment, Torque include Gram Force-Centimeter (gf-cm), Kilogram Force-Meter (kgf-m), Newton-Centimeter (N-cm), Newton-Meter (N-m), Ounce Force-Inch (ozf-in), Pound Force-Foot (lbf-ft), Pound Force-Inch (lbf-in), and Poundal-Foot (pdl-ft).
