# Gravitational Field Strength & Gravitational Acceleration

Last updated on December 2nd, 2022 at 05:10 pm

Here we will see how Gravitational Field Strength is related to Gravitational Acceleration. To determine how gravitational field strength is related to gravitational acceleration, we will use this equation or relation: 1 N = 1 kg.m/s2. Then we will use kg.m/s2 instead of N in the equation for gravitational field strength:

Unit of gravitational field strength = 1 N/kg = 1 (kg.m/s2) /kg = 1 m/s2

Meters per second squared ( m/s2 ) are the units of acceleration. So in terms of units, gravitational field strength, and gravitational acceleration are equivalent.

Unit of gravitational field strength (Newton/kg) can be reduced to 1 m/s2, which is the unit of acceleration. Hence, in terms of units, gravitational field strength, and gravitational acceleration are equivalent.
