### 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

### How many volts does 10 watts equal?

If you are talking DC voltage:
1 billion volts at 10 nano amperes is 10 watts.
1 million volts at 10 micro amperes is 10 watts.
1 thousand volts at 10 milli amperes is 10 watts.
1 volt at 10 amperes is 10 watts.
So, it depends. You're comparing power to potential, which
cannot be directly compared without more information (the
amperage).

### What is the SI unit of heat?

Heat is a form of energy. In terms of kinetic theory it can be
defined as
the sum of kinetic energy of molecules in a sample of a
substance.
-- Its SI unit is the Joule.
-- Its CGS unit is the erg = 10-7 joule.
Comment
'Heat' is energy in transit between a warmer body and a cooler
body. The definition given in the original answer is for 'internal
energy', not heat.

### How many volts is a 100 watts?

The question "How many volts is a 100 watts?" does not make
sense. This answer explains why, and attempts to answer the
underlying question.
A volt is a unit of electrical pressure, in fundamental units of
joules per coulomb. A watt, on the other hand is a unit of power
transfer, in fundamental units of joules per second. The two units
do not convert between each other without some other factor.
That factor is current, or amperes, in fundamental units of
coulombs per second.
Multiply volts (joules per coulomb) and amperes (coulombs per
second) and you get watts (joules per second).
So, at a current of 10 amperes, a voltage of 10 volts will
dissipate 100 watts. At 5 amperes, it takes 20 volts to dissipate
100 watts. At 1 amperes, it takes 100 volts to dissipate 100
watts.

### What is the cgs unit for acceleration?

Galileo (Gal or gal)the CGS unit of acceleration. One
Galileo is an acceleration of 1 centimeter per second per second
(cm/s2). This unit is used by geologists, who make careful
measurements of local variations in the acceleration of gravity in
order to draw conclusions about the geologic structures underlying
an area. These variations are typically measured in milligals
(mGal). One Gal is approximately 0.001 019 7 g, so a
milligal is a very small acceleration, about 10-6 g. The
name of the unit honors the Italian astronomer and natural
philosopher Galileo Galilei (1564-1642), who proved that all
objects at the Earth's surface experience the same gravitational
acceleration. To avoid confusion with the symbol for the gallon,
and to conform to the usual metric style, the symbol for this unit
should be Gal rather than gal.

### How do you convert farad to ampere?

You cannot convert farads directly to amperes without additional
information.
The farad is a unit of capacitance, while the ampere is a unit
of electrical current flow. They are not directly related, however,
you can consider the equation of a capacitor is...
dv/dt = i/c
... which means that the rate of change of voltage, in volts per
second, is proportional to current in amperes and inversely
proportional to capacitance in farads.
For instance, a 100uF capacitor will produce (on discharge) or
require (on charge) 10 volts per second at a current of 1
milliampere.
