    • n dyne In physics, the unit of force in the centimeter-gram-second system, being that force which, acting on a gram for one second, generates a velocity of a centimeter per second; the product of a gram into a centimeter, divided by the square of a mean solar second. The force of a dyne is about equivalent to the weight of a milligram. It requires a force of about 445,000 dynes to support one pound of matter on the earth's surface in latitude 45°.

In science:

For comparison, the mean values of angular momentum fluxes carried by ion flows in the slow solar wind are Lp = 19.6 and Lα = 1.3 ×1029 dyne cm sr−1 (see table II of Pizzo et al. (1983)).
Angular momentum transport and proton-alpha differential streaming in the solar wind
The fluxes carried by all particles is then LP = Lp + Lα = 20.9 × 1029 dyne cm sr−1 , which tends to be larger than LM .
Angular momentum transport and proton-alpha differential streaming in the solar wind
Lα at χ ≈ 1, no values as large as 19.6×1029 dyne cm sr−1 can be found for Lp unless the alpha particles are heated even more intensely.
