Svedberg is time unit, symbol: [S]. Definition of 1 svedberg ≡ 10−13 s. The svedberg is actually a measure of time; it is defined as exactly 10−13 seconds (100 fs). It is often used to reflect the rate at which a molecule travels to the bottom of a test tube under the centrifugal force of a centrifuge.. Compared to second, svedberg is smaller unit.
• 1 [S] = (exactly) `1*10^-13` [s]
• 1 [s] = (exactly) `1/(1*10^-13)` [S] = 10000000000000 [S]
