Homework Help: Quick question about acceleration.

  1. Nov 29, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If I had an acceleration of A=69g's can I just say A=69(9.81) = 676.89m/s^2?

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    Depends on the context. You are essentially stating the same thing just in different words/numbers. In physics, we would prefer the form (m/s^2) however,.
