what is the value of small g
Asked by anupamahari | 20th Sep, 2010, 11:23: AM
g is termed as acceleration due to gravity.
It is defined as acceleration with which all bodies falling freely udner teh effect of gravity due to earth.
Its value is same irrespective of mass & size of the bodies, provided there is no air resistance. That is, all bodies, whether it is a body as light as a feather or as heavy as big stone, will fall towards the earth with same acceleration, that is, a = g = 9.8 m/s2 , provided the experiment is done in the absence of air.
Its value is 9.8 m/s2.
We hope that clarifies your query.
