How do you convert density of water in CGS unit to SI unit?
Why is it convienient to express the density or the specific gravity in cgs units?
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.
