Calculating G Force

  1. Oct 30, 2003 #1
    Hi,
    Can someone give me an equation to calculate G-force using RPM & turn radius. (0 degree bank angle)

    Thanks,
    Glenn

    If 'r' is the turn radius (in meters), and 'f' is the revolutions per minute, then the acceleration 'a' (in g's) is given by:

    a ≈ 0.00112 rf2
