# What Are G Forces on a Jet and How to Calculate Them in a Turn?

• Maximilian Popelier
In summary, the conversation discussed the topic of g forces on a jet, specifically in regards to calculating them during a turn. It was suggested to check out Hyperphysics or other websites for examples and problems related to uniform circular motion and airplane physics. The person requesting help also expressed interest in finding more specific information.

Hi, do you guys got information about g forces on a jet and maybe exercise and ansers where you need to calculate the g force in a turn?
ty for the help

Do you mean just uniform circular motion type of problems? You could probably check out Hyperphysics or a related website.

Or do you mean something specific to high-performance jet flight, with lift and drag and other considerations included?

i will check hyperphysics ty

i don't really find something can you sow me something more specific?

## 1. What is g force?

G force, also known as gravitational force, is a measurement of the force exerted by gravity on a specific object or body. It is typically measured in units of acceleration, such as meters per second squared (m/s^2).

## 2. How does g force affect a jet?

G force can affect a jet in multiple ways. It can cause the jet to accelerate or decelerate, depending on the direction of the force. It can also cause strain on the jet's structure and the bodies of the passengers and crew inside.

## 3. What is the maximum g force a jet can withstand?

The maximum g force a jet can withstand varies depending on the type and design of the jet. However, most modern jets are designed to withstand up to 9 g forces.

## 4. How does g force impact the human body in a jet?

G force can cause significant strain on the human body, particularly on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. It can also lead to loss of consciousness or even death if the force is too strong or sustained for too long.

## 5. Can pilots control g force on a jet?

Yes, pilots can control g force on a jet to a certain extent. They can use techniques such as avoiding sharp turns or pulling up too quickly to minimize the amount of g force experienced by the jet and its passengers. Pilots can also wear specialized suits that help distribute the force more evenly across their bodies.
