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


ANSWER

$$10^{5}$$


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 

= $$N/ dyne=10^5$$
