The centimetre-gram-second system (CGS) is a system of physical units. It is always the same for mechanical units, but there are several variants of electric additions. It was replaced by the MKS, or metre-kilogram-second system, which in turn was replaced by the International System of Units (SI), which has the three base units of MKS plus the ampere, mole, candela and kelvin. from Arun

S.i unit

The dioptre, which is equal to 1/meter.

Any energy - electrical or otherwise - is measured in Joule.

The Joule.

Stress has the same dimensions as pressure: force per unit area. In the SI, therefore (or in other MKS systems), the units would be newtons / meter2.

The correct unit for speed in MKS system is 'm'.

when the unit of any physical quantity is measured in terms of meter or kilogram or second or in combination of these then it is said that unit is in MKS system.

meter/second2.

Dyne is the unit of force in CGS system and joule is the unit of work in MKS system. So both are for different physical quantities. So they cannot be related.

mks unit for before 10 years old ,now all engineering using only SI unit only

A dyne is the unit of force in the CGS (centimeter-gram-second) system; it is equal to 0.00001 newtons (the unit in the MKS or meter-kilogram-second system); it is also equal to approximately 0.22481 pounds of force according to Wikipedia.

The dioptre, which is equal to 1/meter.

The unit of temperature in MKS (meter-kilogram-second) system is the Kelvin (K).

Any energy - electrical or otherwise - is measured in Joule.
