### When acceleration upward or downward direction is taken positivw or negative?

If it is gravitational acceleration then it it is positive in downward and negative in upward direction..if it is not gravitational acceleration then it is depending upon the value of acceleration.

### What is the difference between gravitational acceleration and acceleration?

Gravitational acceleration is simply acceleration due to gravity.

### Value of gravitational acceleration in centimeter per seconds squared?

On Earth, that is about 980.

### Is gravitational pull the same as gravitational acceleration?

No. "Pull" is a force, not an acceleration.

### What is value of gravitational acceleration?

At the Earth's surface the nominal value is about 9.8 m/s2. The exact value varies from place to place.

### Why is acceleration due to gravity low in space?

The acceleration due to gravity from any given object decreases with distance from it. Specifically, gravity scales with the inverse of the square of the distance. That means, for example, if you double your distance, gravitational acceleration is reduced to a quarter of what it was. Most areas of space are quite empty, far from any massive objects, which means that acceleration due to gravity will be quite small. Conversely, some areas of space that are very near massive objects can have enormous gravitational acceleration.

### What is the value of gravitational acceleration in feet per seconds squared?

There are 3.28 feet in a meter.The accepted value for Gravitational on earch is 9.8 m/s2convert to feet = 32.2 ft/s2

### Does the acceleration of a projectile motion ever go to zero?

Not unless it is shot into deep space or a location of complete gravitational cancelation

### How does Acceleration relate to gravity?

Not at all. However Gravity can impart an acceleration - Gravitational acceleration.

### What is acceleration deu to gravity"g"?

Acceleration due to gravity &quot;g&quot; is produced by a gravitational force. This can be understood through Newton's law of gravitation: Law of Gravitation: F = (G * m1 * m2) / r^2 where, F is the gravitational force, G is the gravitational contraction number (used in the gravitational formula), m1 and m2 are the masses of two objects, r is the distance between two objects. It follows from this formula that the force of gravity is universal in relation to the velocity and distance between the two objects. &quot;g&quot; here stands for gravitational contraction number or gravitational contraction number of gravitational space (gravitational constant). Because its value is very small, the effect of gravity on the gravitational force is not very strong. It is resorted to by humans at almost all lengths and times. Acceleration of an object with the Earth by gravity &quot;g&quot; is a quantity of energy, which is very small in a single month's mass in a single time. It is important to note that &quot;g&quot; deals with the acceleration of the object relative to Earth, and does not focus on the overall acceleration.

### Can you calculate gravitational acceleration witn only having the time and the mass of the object?

Gravitational acceleration is always g = 9.8

### Can gravitational acceleration be reduced artificially?

No. Gravitational Acceleration is a constant and is a function of mass. The effects of the constant upon another mass can be altered but the acceleration itself will remain the same.
