Gravity

gravity 7Gravity, abbreviated as g, also called gravitation, is a force pulling togeather all matter.  Everything that has mass has a gavitational pull that is exerted on one another.  The larger the mass, the stronger the gravitational pull is exerted, this includes all matter.

 

Gravity formula

\(\large{ g = \frac {PE} {m \; h}  }\) 

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ g }\) = gravity \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec^2}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s^2}}\)
\(\large{ h }\) = height \(\large{ ft }\) \(\large{ m }\)
\(\large{ m }\) = mass \(\large{ lbm }\) \(\large{ kg }\)
\(\large{ PE }\) = potential energy \(\large{ ft-lbf }\) \(\large{ J }\)
