A dyne (symbol dyn) was a unit of measurement defined as the force that accelerated a mass of one gram at the rate of one centimeter per second squared. One dyne was equal to 2.2481e−6×10−6 pounds of force, or 10−5 newtons.

Comparative list of force

1 microdyne = 1 millionth of a dyne
1 kilodyne = 1 thousand dynes
1 teradyne = 1 trillion dynes
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 377) defined "isodyne", which was mentioned in "Gravity", as "a unit of measure, used to quantify energetic warp particles."
