## Gravitational Acceleration Tutorial

#### Gravitational Acceleration:

Gravitational Acceleration is the acceleration of an object caused by the force of gravity from another object.

#### Gravitational Acceleration:

###### Gravitational Acceleration: ###### Planet Mass:  ###### where,

G = Universal Gravitational Constant = 6.6726 x 10-11N-m2/kg2 M = Planet Mass r = Radius from Planet Center

#### Gravitational Acceleration Examples:

##### Case 1:

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.

###### Step 1:

Substitute the values in the below Gravitational Acceleration formula: This example will guide you to calculate the Gravitational Acceleration manually.

##### Case 2:

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.

###### Step 1:

Substitute the values in the below Radius formula: This example will guide you to calculate the Radius of the Moon manually.
