The hyl, metric slug (mug), or TME (German: technische Masseneinheit, technical mass unit), is the mass that accelerates at 1 m/s² under a force of 1 kgf.
The hyl has also been used as the unit of mass in a meter-gram force-second (mgfs) system. This hyl is 10-3 as much as the above, more common, hyl.
