If I am accelerating, in space, 3000 mph every hour, how many G's do I feel?
at 10,000 mph?
Use Newton's second law and find out.
If you don't know
(which you probally do know just wanted to make sure)
Nah, it's just a unit-conversion problem. One "G" equals 9.8 m/sec^2 (m/sec per second) or 32 ft/sec^2 (ft/sec per sec). So he needs to convert 3000 mi/hr per hr to whichever units are more convenient for him.
If he's rusty on unit conversions, he might want to do it one step at a time, starting for example with
3000 mi/hr per hr = (3000 * 5280) ft/hr per hr
Why would it matter how many 'g's you feel at 10000 mph? It would be the same as at 0 mph because 'g's is a measure of acceleration not velocity.
If you look at the post he/she says 300mph per hour, which is an acceleration. However, he/she later says 10 000mph, but I think they simply forgot to add the 'per hour'
Yeah, I've realised that, I only half read the post tbh.
About 4% of a g
About 13% of a g
Use Einstein's second law, F=ma
By the way, the title of this thread, "How does gravity grow through acceleration", is very misleading! "g"s are a measure of acceleration. "Gravity" does not change "through acceleration"!
Yeah - this is a unit conversion question first, then simply a division by 9.8 second.
Newton's theory of genial relativity, innit :tongue:
Wasn't Einstein's second law never wear the same pair of socks simultaneously?
Newton, Einstein, whatever - they're all eggheads. Can't tell em apart.
You! Beer-stein! Do my homework or I'll stuff your head in the toilet!
Thank you Janus, that is what I wanted to know,
I already know f = ma.
You wanted to know the answer, not how to do the question?!?! :surprised
Well, yes, If you can tell me in an understanable way, with exaples...
But with the answers I was given I will be able to deduce more answers by using simple algebra.
His point is that you specifically thanked Janus, whose answer consisted entirely of
which gives no explanation at all!
I don't need to know the way you got it if I can find more answers from two.
Arian is trying to learn how to write ...
by knowing that periods go just before Capital letters.
Separate names with a comma.
