In this article I will show you how to convert 1 g-forces into metres per second squared. Throughout the explanation below I might also call it 1 gf to mps². They are the same thing!
How to Convert G-forces to Metres per second squared
A g-force is greater than a metres per second squared. I know that a gf is greater than a mps² because of something called conversion factors.
Put very simply, a conversion factor is a number that can be used to change one set of units to another, by multiplying or dividing it. So when we need to convert 1 g-forces into metres per second squared, we use a conversion factor to get the answer.
The conversion factor for gf to mps² is:
Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 1 gf to mps² by multiplying
9.80665 by the number of g-forces we have, which is 1.
So, the answer to the question "what is 1 g-forces in metres per second squared?" is 9.80665 mps².

Best Conversion Unit for 1 gf
Sometimes when you work with conversions from one unit to another, the numbers can get a little confusing. Especially when dealing with really large numbers.
I've also calculated what the best unit of measurement is for 1 gf.
To determine which unit is best, I decided to define that as being the unit of measurement which is as low as possible, without going below 1. Smaller numbers are more easily understood and can make it easier for you to understand the measurement.
The best unit of measurement I have found for 1 gf is g-forces and the amount is 1 gf.
