Galileo is a unit in the category of Acceleration. It is also known as galileos. Galileo has a dimension of LT-2 where L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit m/s2 by multiplying its value by a factor of 0.01.
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 Acceleration include Celo (ft/s2), Centimeter Per Square Second (cm/s2), Foot Per Square Second (ft/s2), G (gravitational Acceleration) (g), Inch Per Square Second (in/s2), Kilometer Per Hour Per Second (km/h-s), Leo, Meter Per Square Second (m/s2), Mile (stat.) Per Hour Per Second (mph/s, mi/h-s), and Normal Acceleration (gn).
