Also, what does G stand for in measurement? The gram (abbreviation, **g** or gm) **is the**cgs (centimeter/gram/second) unit of mass. A force of one dyne (1dyn), applied to a mass of one gram (1 **g**), will cause thatmass to accelerate at one centimeter per second squared (1cm/s^{2}).

Accordingly, what type of measurement is MG?
