# If 'muscle times speed equals power', then what is the ratio of the $SI$ unit and the $CGS$ unit of muscle?

$10^{5}$

##### SOLUTION
Given :

Muscles $\times$ Speed $=$ Power

and we know that

Force $\times$ Speed $=$ Power

comparing both the equations;

Muscles $=$ Force

S.I. unit of force $=$ N $=$ Newton

CGS unit of force $=$ dyne

and $1N = 10^5 dynes$

So the SI unit of muscles will be

= $N/ dyne=10^5$
