Units[edit | edit source]

Mass Loss Rate can be viewed using the following units:

  • Earth mass per second (earth/s) = 5.972×1024 kg/s
  • Moon mass per second (moon/s) = 7.349×1022 kg/s
  • Solar mass per year (sun/yr) = 6.303×1022 kg/s
  • Earth mass per year (earth/yr) = 1.892×1017 kg/s
  • Moon mass per year (moon/yr) = 2.329×1015 kg/s
  • Kilograms per second (kg/s) is the SI unit for mass per time
  • Grams per second (g/s) = 0.001 kg/s
