### What is Acceleration?

Acceleration is a measure of how quickly an object’s velocity changes over time. It is a vector quantity, meaning it has both magnitude and direction. In practical terms, acceleration tells us how fast an object is speeding up or slowing down. The most common unit of acceleration is meters per second squared (m/s²), but it can also be measured in other units like feet per second squared (ft/s²), galileos (Gal), or g-forces (gn), among others.

The formula to calculate acceleration is:

However, this calculator focuses on converting existing acceleration values between different units.

### Examples of Acceleration Conversion Calculations

Let’s look at a few examples to understand how acceleration conversion is done:

Example 1:

• Convert: 9.8 meters per second squared (m/s²) to feet per second squared (ft/s²)
• Calculation:
• Conversion factor from m/s² to ft/s² is 3.28084.
• Multiply the given value by the conversion factor: $9.8 \times 3.28084 = 32.15223$
• Result: $9.8 \, \text{m/s²} = 32.15223 \, \text{ft/s²}$

Example 2:

• Convert: 1 g-force (gn) to meters per second squared (m/s²)
• Calculation:
• Conversion factor from gn to m/s² is 9.80665.
• Multiply the given value by the conversion factor: $1 \times 9.80665 = 9.80665$
• Result: $1 \, \text{gn} = 9.80665 \, \text{m/s²}$

Example 3:

• Multiply the given value by the conversion factor: $500 \times 0.01 = 5$
• Result: $500 \, \text{cm/s²} = 5 \, \text{m/s²}$
