Acceleration to g

  1. Quick question:
    If I have an acceleration of the car in the longitudinal direction (for example 6 m/s²), how can I calculate the acceleration in g's?

    Thx!

  3. Acceleration due to gravity is 1g = 9.81m/s2.

    So you would work out how many g's there are in your value.

    For example, [your value] / 9.81 = number of g's
