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. ...
Asked in Planetary Science, Gravity
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. ...
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. ...
Asked in Physics
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 ...

What is the the force of gravity on each planet?
In terms of g, where 1 g is the acceleration due to gravity on earth, the other planets have the following values for g; Planetg at equatorMercury0.38Venus0.904Earth0.99732Mars0.376Jupiter2.528Saturn1.065Uranus0.886Neptune1.14 ...
What is a force beginning with G that pulls something together?
Gravitational force (or gravity) is a force that pulls things together.
Asked in Gravity
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 ...

Does gravity pull down more on an elephant or on mouse?
Gravity is an acceleration g that pulls down the same on an elephant or a mouse: F=g mouse and F=g Elephant. The force is different but the gravity (acceleration) is the acceleration is the same. ...
