Hey... just a quick question...

What quantity is measured in grams/second?

i don't know for sure.
momentum is

grams*meter/second

r u sure u got his right?

if so, if such quantity exists,
it would be decribing the flow rate or something similar. (this is purely based on your units).

g/s would be some sort of flow rate. Like sand flowing out of a holding tank, or liquid flowing down a pipe.

It could also be a drag coefficient: F=Cv. C is in kg/s.

The rate at which medication is delivered by IV could be measured in g/s.

Flow rate, $$\dot{m}$$
