# Calculate the acceleration due to gravity, g.

Question asked by: tnel777

Asked on: 21 Sep 2009

The acceleration due to gravity on earth is a constant and it is around 9.8m/s.

Therefore there is no need to actually do a calculation with figures as you already know if you are asked to calculate it and assuming you are on earth then this is the answer that you will get, a handy little shortcut for you ;)

Suppose,maximum height=h and accn. due to gravity=g.
Now,h+10=(1/2)g(1.8)^2
or,h+10=1.62g .........(1)
and, h=(1/2)g(1.1)^2
or, h=0.605g ........(2)
Solving equations (1) and (2), we get the value of g = 9.85m/s^2
