Symbol: G / Base data: acceleration
Differs slightly depending on where you are in the world
Gravitation is constantly being applied to objects on the earth, so if there is not a support, then they will accelerate and fall. This is known as gravitational acceleration. As a matter of fact, gravitational acceleration differs slightly from place to place, so it was determined as 1G = 9.80665 m/s2 at the 1901 General Conference of Weights and Measures.
