Acceleration Due to Gravity Calculation

The calculator calculates the occurrence of the acceleration due to gravity on exterior portion of the earth.





g' = ( re2 / r2) * g


g - Earth Surface,

re - Earth Radius,

r - Outside Radius of Earth,

g' - Acceleration due to gravity


Factors affecting acceleration due to gravity

The shape of the Earth.

Rotational motion of the Earth.

Altitude above the Earth's surface.

Depth below the Earth's surface.

The SI unit of acceleration is the metre per second squared (m s−2)
