The dyne (dyn) is also equal to 10 micronewtons (μN), or 0.01 millinewtons (mN), or 0.001 centinewtons (cN), or 10-6 decanewtons (daN) or 10-8 kilonewtons (kN), which are units of force in the SI.

The dyne represents the amount of force needed to accelerate a mass of one gram to one centimeter per second squared:

1 dyn = 1 g × 1 cm/s2
