The time rate of change of velocity, usually measured in Gs in the English system of measurements, and in meters per second per second (m/s2) in the SI system. It is interesting to note that the G is not actually a unit of acceleration, but is the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity at the earth's surface. This causes some undue complexity in converting parameters between acceleration, velocity, and displacement. The value of G amounts to 32.2 feet per second per second.
