How Is Gravitational Field Strength Related to Gravitational Acceleration?

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 the definition of a newton, 1 N = 1 kg.m/s2. Then we will substitute kilogram-meters per second squared for newtons (N) in the equation for 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.
