What does the G stand for in the law of gravity?

Surprisingly enough, the G stands for Gravity.

What does the G stand for in G-SHOCK?

So the G is most likely Gravity as is the G in G-Force. They were designed to take a bit more punishment than other watches, hence the name: G for gravity, Shock, meaning it can absorb impact

What is a G?

a G is the force due to gravity. 2G would be twice the force due to gravity. Astronauts have to withstand multiple G when leaving the Earth's atmosphere.

What units are used for acceleration?

G-Force, G is for gravity.

What is the measure of the force of gravity acting on an object?

g force

What is another name for gravitational force?

G-force or Gravity.

How are forces related to gravity?

force is related to gravity by its mass (m) times the acceleration of gravity (g) F =mg

What does g stands for in term of 2g?

G as an abbreviation can stand for "grams", the metric unit of weight. A paper clip weighs about 1 gram. Or, it can stand for the force of gravity on an object. Someone at any given time on Earth will feel a force of 1 g, while someone riding a roller coaster might experience 2 g or 3 g.

What is the meaning of the word geforce?

According to the dictionary, a G-force is the result of acceleration of gravity. G-force is a unit of force equal to the force exerted by gravity and is used to tell the force a body is being subjected to when its accelerated.

Which planet has the least force of gravity?

Mercury has. Its gravity is 38% of Earth's.F=mg where F is the force of gravity, m is the mass of an object, and g is the acceleration due to gravity. g is a constant for all masses of matter. Then the planet with the smallest mass would have the least Force of Gravity.

What is force of gravity to do with 9.81?

The force due to gravity is called your weight. This force causes an acceleration. The acceleration due to gravity on the earth is 9.81 m/s/s. W = m g g = acceleration due to gravity = 9.81 m/s/s

What are the forces that affect people in an airplane?

Gravity, G-force (value of force exerted on a body), Air pressureg force?

What g is a force that pulls things downwards?


While in a Zero-G environment is there any opportunity to experience G-Force caused by ambient gravity?

g-forces are not caused by gravity. yes, g-force can be experienced in zero-g. just ride a centrifuge.

What is the gravity force on Venus's?

The surface gravity on Venus is close to that of earth: 0.904 g.

Does a rock falling from a cliff have a constant acceleration?

Yes. Every body that is falling, (if there is no other force then the gravity force) will fall in constant acceleration. Mass does not affect the acceleration of the body. According to Newton's second law: F=m*a m*g=m*a g=a F= Force m= mass a= acceleration g= gravity acceleration m*g= the force of gravity

How do you go against gravity?

You stand up. Or you apply some other force that counteracts gravity.

What force pulls things towards the earth?

What is a car's g-force?

There are accelerating G's, Braking G's and cornering G's. It is the force in that direction the car and occupants are exposed to. 1 G is the for of gravity.

What is the definition of G-force?

The force that is applied by gravity on a moving body, especially under extreme accelaration.

What is a force beginning with G that pulls something together?

Gravitational force (or gravity) is a force that pulls things together.

How do friction and gravity relate?

The magnitude of friction is proportional to the magnitude of the normal force which is proportional to the magnitude of gravity(The magnitude of the normal force is indirectly proportional to the magnitude of gravity.). The magnitude of the normal force, N, compared to gravity, G, on angle z, is: N=cos(z)*G On a flat surface. N=G The coefficient of friction, whether static or kinetic, f is therefore: N=cos(z)*G*f

What is the gravity on the man?

The force of gravity on a man is his mass(m) in kg multiplied by the acceleration due to gravity(g). On the surface of the Earth, g = 9.8 m/s2F = mg
