Gravitational Acceleration is the acceleration of an object caused by the force of gravity from another object.
G = Universal Gravitational Constant = 6.6726 x 10-11N-m2/kg2 M = Planet Mass r = Radius from Planet Center
What is the acceleration due to gravity on Earth? Mass of the earth = 5.98x1024 kg, Radius of the earth = 6378100 m, G = 6.6726 x 10-11N-m2/kg2.
Substitute the values in the below Gravitational Acceleration formula:
This example will guide you to calculate the Gravitational Acceleration manually.
Determine the Moon's radius? The gravitational acceleration of the moon is 1.63 m/s2 Mass of moon = 7.36 x 1022 kg, a = 1.63 m/s2, G = 6.6726 x 10-11N-m2/kg2.
Substitute the values in the below Radius formula:
This example will guide you to calculate the Radius of the Moon manually.
This tutorial will help you dynamically to find the Gravitational Acceleration problems.
