Gravity is a fundamental force of the universe that accelerates massive objects toward each other.

Reference Figures

  • Standard Gravity on Earth: 9.80665 m/s² = 1 g
  • Gravity on Earth's Moon: 1.622 m/s²
  • Gravity on Mars: 3.71 m/s²

Converting from g to m/s²

Let us say that your object is accelerating at 400 g's (like HIBEX).

Figuring out its acceleration in meters per second per second (m/s²) can be done by the following calculation:

400 g * 9.80665 m/s² = 3,922.66 m/s²
