Value of Acceleration due to gravity

Acceleration of a freely falling bodies is called gravitational acceleration or acceleration due to gravity.The value of gravitational acceleration is 10 ms-².Acceleration due do gravity formula is calculated by using Newton’s law of gravitation. Acceleration due to gravity formula Value of acceleration due to gravity is 10 m/second-second which is calculated by using formula given below. Above formula shows that ...

difference between centre of mass and centre of gravity

Centre of mass and centre of gravity are often considered same terms,but actually they are two different terms. Center of mass is a point in a body where net force causes the body to move without rotation,while center of gravity is the point where whole weight of the body acts vertically downward. Centre of mass of a system is such a ...

Difference between force and pressure

The difference between force and pressure is that “Force is an agency which moves or tends to move ,stops or tends to stop the motion of a body.Force is the vector quantity.While pressure is the force acting normally per unit area on the surface of a body.It is a scalar quantity. Relation between pressure and force Mathematically ,pressure can be ...

Difference between uniform and non uniform motion with examples

The basic difference between uniform and nonuniform motion is that:In uniform motion a body moves with constant speed such as Motion of earth around the sun .While in non uniform motion a body moves with variable speed such as Horse running in the race. Difference between uniform and non uniform motion with examples   Uniform motion Non Uniform motion In ...

Fundamental units and their definitions

Units The fixed and definite quantity taken as the standard of reference with which other quantities of the same kind are measured is defined as a “unit”. Fundamental Units The units of fundamental quantities are called “fundamental units”. For example, units of length, mass and time or those of fundamental units. Table lists all fundamental and supplementary units and their ...
