What is the unit of speed and acceleration?

A change in velocity with respect to time is called acceleration. Acceleration is a vector quantity, with both magnitude and direction. Acceleration is the rate of change of an object's velocity. The SI unit of acceleration is meters per second squared (sometimes written as "per second per second"), m/s2.

Consequently, what is the CGS unit of speed?

The centimetre–gram–second system of units (abbreviated CGS or cgs) is a variant of the metric system based on the centimetre as the unit of length, the gram as the unit of mass, and the second as the unit of time.
