Gravitational Acceleration Calculator

Calculate the gravitational acceleration from mass and force, with different units. The gravitational acceleration tells, how much a falling body in a vacuum accelerates, which is independant of its mass. This is equivalent with the weight a certain mass has in a gravitation field. The average gravitational acceleration on Earth is 1 g, this is 9.80665 meters per square second or newtons per kilogram. At the poles, this value is with 9.832 m/s² slightly higher, at the equator, it is with 9.780 m/s² slightly lower.

Force F:

Example: a mass of 12 kilograms on Earth weights about 117.68 newtons.
