a unit measuring the inertial stress on a body undergoing rapid acceleration, expressed in multiples of the acceleration of gravity
Origin of G-forcefrom g(ravity)
A force acting on a body as a result of acceleration or gravity, informally described in units of gees.
- The acceleration of a body, relative to the freefall acceleration due to any local gravitational field, expressed in multiples of g0 (the mean acceleration due to gravity at the Earth's surface).
(plural g forces)
- Alternative spelling of g-force.
