Name and define the S.I and C.G.S unit of force. How are they related?
S.I unit of force is Newton (N).
One Newton is that force which when acting on a body of mass 1 kg, produces an acceleration of 1 m s-2 in it.
C.G.S unit of force is dyne.
One dyne is that force which when acting on a body of mass 1 gram, produces an acceleration of 1 cm s-2 in it.
1 Netwon = `10^5` dyne
