# Convert g units to gravity

Learn how to convert 1 g units to gravity step by step.

## Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(g \text{ } units\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(gravity\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(g \text{ } units\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 9.80665\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 9.80665\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(gravity\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 9.80665\left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 9.80665\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(g \text{ } units\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(gravity\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 9.80665} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 9.80665}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{meter}{square \text{ } second}\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 9.80665} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 9.80665} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 9.80665} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 9.80665} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left(\dfrac{m}{s^{2}}\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$9.80665 = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 9.80665$$
Cancel factors on both sides
$$\text{Cancel factors}$$
$${\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{9.80665}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{9.80665}}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$$1.0 = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = 1.0$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = 1$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(g \text{ } units\right) = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 1}\left(gravity\right)$$
