@ Impossible
awesome work

I m just adding lil explaination to ur work

Gauss---------unit of magnetic flux density
ERG-----------A unit of energy in the CGS system/also unit of work
Becquerel----- (symbol Bq) is the SI derived unit of radioactivity
The torr --------------(symbol: Torr) or millimetre of mercury (mmHg) is a non-SI unit of pressure.
