Hello,

A good practice is to use exclusively basic SI units, then you are safe from this kind of questions and/or related problems (because all output is also in basic SI units)

based of physical dimensions:
force = mass * acceleration = mass * length / (time * time)
so multiply (cm) by (unit you use for mass) and divide by square of (unit you use for time)

Or, as suggested above, use basic units everywhere and then the force unit is just N (Newton).

cheers
Jan
