**Dyne Per Centimeter**

**Dyne Per Centimeter (dyn/cm)**is a unit in the category of

*Surface tension*. It is also known as dynes per centimeter, dynes per centimetre, dyne per centimetre, dyne/cm, dyne/centimeter. This unit is commonly used in the cgs unit system. Dyne Per Centimeter (dyn/cm) has a dimension of MT

^{-2}where M is mass, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit N/m by multiplying its value by a factor of 0.001.

Other units in the category of Surface tension include Erg Per Square Centimeter (erg/cm^{2}), Erg Per Square Millimeter (erg/mm^{2}), Kilogram Force Per Meter (kgf/m), Newton Per Meter (N/m), Ounce Force Per Foot (ozf/ft), Ounce Force Per Inch (ozf/in), Pound Force Per Foot (lbf/ft), Pound Force Per Inch (lbf/in), Poundal Per Foot (pdl/ft), and Poundal Per Inch (pdl/in).
