proper acceleration is the acceleration actually felt/experienced by an accelerating body. the integral of this gives the proper velocity. this makes intuitive sense. but the derivation of the formula for proper acceleration doesnt make intuitive sense to me. I'm very confused about how one would determine how many g-forces were being experienced by an astronaut moving very near the speed of light.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
