dyne , unit of force in the cgs system of units, which is based on the metric system ; an acceleration of 1 centimeter per second per second is produced when a force of 1 dyne is exerted on a mass of 1 gram. In terms of the newton , the force unit in the mks system , 1 dyne equals 0.00001 newtons ...

Now *dyne and Newton are both units of force; dyne in CGS system and Newton in MKS system.*

*Dyne is that force which produces an acceleration of 1 cm/s² in a body of mass 1 g.*

So, *1 Dyne = 1 g × 1cm/s² ————————(1)*

*Similarly, one Newton is that force which produces an acceleration of 1 m/s² in a body of 1 kg.*

So, 1 Newton= (1 kg) × (1 m/s²)= (1000 g)×(100 cm/s²)= 100000 ×(1 g)× (1 cm/s²)= 100000 dyne.

So 1 Newton = 10^{5} dyne.
