Acceleration conversion

= 9.807 m/sec²
= 10.72 yard/sec²
= 980.7 Gal (Galileo)= 1 g (earth gravity)

Acceleration x time = speed

  • After 2.83 seconds at this acceleration, the speed is 100km/h, the distance is 39.3 meter
  • After 2.73 seconds at this acceleration, the speed is 60mph
  • After 1 seconds (1 s) at this acceleration, the speed is 9.81 m/s (35.3 km/h)
  • After 5 seconds at this acceleration, the speed is 49.03 m/s (176.52 km/h)
