Gram-Square Centimeter (g-cm2) is a unit in the category of Mass moment of inertia. It is also known as gram square centimeter, gram square centimetre. This unit is commonly used in the cgs unit system. Gram-Square Centimeter (g-cm2) has a dimension of ML2 where M is mass, and L is length. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit kg-m2 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 Mass moment of inertia include Kilogram-Square Meter (kg-m2), Pound Mass-Square Foot (lbm-ft2), Pound Mass-Square Inch (lbm-in2), Slug-Square Foot (slug-ft2), and Slug-Square Inch (slug-in2).
