# How do you calculate acceleration of gravity?

You can use a pendulum to calculate the acceleration due to gravity,

Example:

A pendulum with a length of

To calculate the acceleration of gravity, you can use the formula:

[a = \frac{F}{m}]

where (a) is the acceleration, (F) is the force of gravity acting on the object, and (m) is the mass of the object. The force of gravity can be calculated using the formula:

[F = mg]

where (g) is the acceleration due to gravity (approximately (9.81 , \text{m/s}^2) on the surface of Earth).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- What would happen to the earth if both the sun and the moon were to disappear instantly?
- A model train with a mass of #7 kg# is moving along a track at #15 (cm)/s#. If the curvature of the track changes from a radius of #32 cm# to #45 cm#, by how much must the centripetal force applied by the tracks change?
- Two objects have masses of #32 MG# and #23 MG#. How much does the gravitational potential energy between the objects change if the distance between them changes from #7 m# to #32 m#?
- Two objects have masses of #45 MG# and #36 MG#. How much does the gravitational potential energy between the objects change if the distance between them changes from #48 m# to #18 m#?
- An innocent boy was sitting on a perfectly hemispherical boulder of radius #R#. It was a dark and rainy night... He slides off the boulder while asleep (assume no friction). At what angle from the vertical, and at what height would he slide off?
