### What is the relationship between SI and CGS units of force?

SI is the Systeme Internalionale of measurement in which the
Metre, kilogram and Second are some primary units. An older system
based on metric units used centimetre, gram, and second as the
primary units. Obviously these may be converted into SI units, but
the CGS system is no longer used. [Some of the definitions of the
fundamental units differ between these systems.]

### What is the CGS unit of current in the electromagnetic system equivalent to 10 amperes?

The centimetre-gram-second system (abbreviated CGS or
cgs) is a metric system of physical units based on centimetre
as the unit of length, gram as a unit of mass, and second as a unit
of time. All CGS mechanical units are unambiguously derived from
these three base units, but there are several different ways of
extending the CGS system to cover electromagnetism.
CGS approach to electromagnetic units The conversion
factors relating electromagnetic units in the CGS and SI systems
are much more involved - so much so that formulas for physical laws
of electromagnetism are adjusted depending on what system of units
one uses. refer to link below for methods

### What is Linear momentum measured in?

Linear momentum of an object is its mass times its velocity.
Since momentum does not have a unit name of its own its units are
whatever you use for mass & velocity. The SI units would be
Kg-M/S . The cgs units would be gm-cm/S , and the English units
would be Slug-Ft/S . It can also be expressed in terms of force
units. SI: Newton-Sec. , Cgs :dyne-Sec, English: Pound-Sec.
