^{[e]} - Kilogram-force [r]: A unit of force which will accelerate 1 kilogram of mass to 9.80665 m/s
^{2}, the standard average acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (referred to as).**g**_{n}^{[e]} - Kilogram-force per square centimeter [r]: The
**kilogram-force per square centimeter**(symbol:**kgf/cm**or often just^{2}**kg/cm**) is a unit of pressure defined as the force exerted by one kilogram-force on one square centimeter.^{2}^{[e]} - Newton [r]: SI derived unit of force, named after Isaac Newton, equal to the amount of force required to accelerate a mass of one kilogram at a rate of one metre per second per second.
^{[e]} - Pascal (unit) [r]: The SI unit of pressure; the force of one newton acting uniformly over an area of one square metre.
^{[e]} - Pound-force [r]: A measurement unit of force which will accelerate 1 pound of mass to 9.80665 m/s

^{[e]} - Torr [r]: A non-SI unit of pressure (symbol: torr) with ratio of 760 to 1 atmosphere, selected to be approximately equal to the fluid pressure exerted by 1 millimeter of mercury (symbol: mmHg) and thus 1 torr ≈ 1 mmHg.
