In (meters/second) / second, usually abbreviated to meters/second2. Or in any other unit of length, divided by a time unit squared (or even two different time units).

What is the acceleration of gravity in pounds?

Acceleration can't be measured or expressed in pounds or any other unit of force. Acceleration is measured in units of (speed)/(time) or (length)/(time)2 .

Can your net force and acceleration be in opposite directions?

No, they are always in the same direction, as expressed in Newton's Second Law, which is usually expressed as: F=ma (force = mass x acceleration). In this equation, acceleration is a vector, so when multiplying it by a mass (which is NOT a vector), you get another vector that points in the same direction.

What is the effect of acceleration of the mass to the acceleration of the object?

The mass affects the acceleration, as expressed in Newton's Second Law. Solving for acceleration, you get:a = F/m In other words, assuming the net force doesn't change, with more mass you get less acceleration.

How is the relationship of the acceleration to mass and force expressed mathematically?

acceleration = force/ mass if mass is constant.

What is the dimensional formula of acceleration due to gravity?

An acceleration is a velocity divided by a time, so you have: acceleration = velocity / time acceleration = (distance / time) / time acceleration = distance / time2 The gravitational field can also be expressed as force / mass; this is equivalent to distance / time2.

What type of acceleration do you have if you are slowing down?

Deceleration. Slowing down can also be expressed by quoting a minus number for the amount of acceleration, e.g. -5m/s.

What must occur to expresss acceleration?

The definition of acceleration is ratio of change to velocity of change in time. Therefore, acceleration is best expressed with distance/ square of time, so ft/s2 and m/s2.

What unit is used to measure acceleration in free fall?

(any unit of distance) divided by (any unit of time)2 is a unit of acceleration.The acceleration of gravity is usually expressed in meters/second2 or feet/second2 .

How do you find the weight from the mass?

Weight is a force. Gravity is expressed as an acceleration. F = ma. You do the math. Literally, in this case; you multiply the acceleration due to gravity by the mass, and you get the weight.

What is the acceleration in minute and second due to the gravity of earth?

Minute and second are not units of acceleration, so the Earth's gravitationalacceleration can't be expressed in those units.The acceleration of gravity on or near the Earth's surface is9.807 meters (32.18 feet) per second per second
