the acceleration of a falling body in the earth’s gravitational field, inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the body to the center of the earth, and varying somewhat with latitude: approximately 32 feet (9.8 meters) per second per second. Symbol: g.
acceleration of gravity
The acceleration of a body falling freely under the influence of the Earth’s gravitational pull at sea level. It is approximately equal to 9.806 m (32.16 ft) per second per second, though its measured value varies slightly with latitude and longitude. Also called acceleration of free fall.
