**Gram-Centimeter Per Second**

**Gram-Centimeter Per Second (g-cm/s)**is a unit in the category of

*Linear momentum*. It is also known as gram centimeter per second, gram centimetre per second. This unit is commonly used in the cgs unit system. Gram-Centimeter Per Second (g-cm/s) has a dimension of MLT

^{-1}where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit kg-m/s by multiplying its value by a factor of 1E-005.

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 Linear momentum include A.u. of Linear Momentum (a.u.), Bole (g-cm/s), Newton-Second (N-s), and Pound Force-Second (lbf-s).
