# g-Acceleration Calculator - Curve, Circiut

Calculation of the g-force at a constant speed in a curve. When a body moves with constant speed in a circuit, it experiences acceleration. This increases with increasing speed and decreasing radius of the circle, which describes the curve in this section. The speed affects the acceleration quadratically. Strong g-forces can occur e.g. in a rollercoaster or in fighter jets.

Enter two values at speed, circle radius and acceleration. The third value will be calculated.

The formula for the acceleration in g is a=v²/r/9.81 (v in m/s, r in m)

Often, acceleration refers to the linear acceleration.

German: g-Beschleunigung
