Im having a bit of trouble understanding g-forces. I get that you divide the forces acting upon an object by 9.8 to obtain the number of g's but does that include forces like force normal? Im also having trouble applying them in situations when acceleration is in different directions such as diagonals. can anyone help explain them for me?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

thanks

Edit: I need help with the g-forces experienced from decelerating too
