would somebody please tell me the acceleration of one "G" in terms of meters per second squared.

I feel another "Rosie" physics problem coming on... [shock]

Don't understand it - won't ask anyone to explain - but I [b]DO[/b] feel good knowing I'm on a board where I can get that answer in 3 minutes, 10 seconds! Tate

Actually G is the universal gravitational constant and g is the acceleration due to gravity (Earth).

If you plan on doing physics, I highly recommend you invest in a good graphing calculator. Such as a TI-89. They come built in with most physical constants plus they are incredibly good at doing symbolic calculations.

Yeah, but then you'll go through all four years of college without doing integrals by hand. Sure, it saves a lot of time, but then you'll grow mathematically inert like all of my engineering buddies. You'll be worthless without a TI-89, just like me! [whacko] themao [chainsawkill] PS: Just kidding. I still know my tables and tricks fairly well, but the fact is when you get into very complex s#$t, you'll end up using computer modeling ANYWAY. Thank the lord for Matlab, despite it's treachorous code.

If it's NOT for school, then the TI-92 Plus is kinda better because of the keyboard and the larger display. But most schools do not allow the TI-92, you cannot use it on the SAT, and it's a little large to be carrying around. If you're in school or taking the SAT soon, the TI-89 is the way to go.
