# 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/s^{2}. Then we will use kg.m/s^{2} instead of N in the equation for gravitational field strength:

Unit of gravitational field strength = **1 N/kg = 1 (kg.m/s ^{2}) /kg = 1 m/s^{2} **

Meters per second squared ( **m/s ^{2}** ) 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/s^{2}, which is the unit of acceleration. Hence, in terms of units, gravitational field strength, and gravitational acceleration are equivalent.
