Differences between Small (g) and Capital (G)

Universal gravitation constant (G):-

1. 1.It is define as the force of attraction acting between two bodies each of unit mass, whose centers are placed unit distance apart.

2. 2.Its value is same throughout the universe.

3. 3.It is a scalar quantity.

4. 4.Dimensional formula for G is [M-1L3T-2].

Acceleration due to gravity (g):-

1.It is defined as the constant acceleration produced in a body when it falls freely under the effect of gravity

2.Its value changes from place to place.

3.It is a vector quantity.

4.Dimensional formula for g is [M0L1T-2].

G IS THE UNIVERSAL CONSTANT OF GRAVITY WHILE   g ACCELERATION DUE TO GRAVITY

  • 2

G is for gravitational constant and g is for acceleration due to gravity

  • 2

1.Gis gravitational constant.and g is acceleration due to gravity.

2.its unit is Nm2/kg2,its unit is m/s2

3.it is variable it is not variable.

What is difference between 'g' and 'G' G stands for Newton's universal gravitational constant, whereas g stands for the acceleration due to gravity at a certain point. G = 6.67300 × 10 - 11 N.m 2 .kg - 2, G is a constant throughout space and time and it is a scalar quantity.

 Universal gravitation constant(G)

 

1.It is define as the force of attraction acting between two bodies each of unit mass, whose centers are placed unit distance apart.

 

2. Its value is same throughout the universe .

 

3. It is a scalar quantity .

 

4. Its value dose not depends upon the nature and the size of the bodies.

 

5. Dimensional formula for G is [M-1L3T-2].

 

Acceleration due to gravity(g)

 

1.It is define as the constant acceleration produced in a body when it falls freely under the effect of gravity .

 

2. its value changes from place to palce.

 

3. it is a vector quantity.

 

4. Its value depends upon the nature and the size of the bodies.

Small g is the acceleration due to gravity whereas capital G is the universal gravity constant.
 
  • 0
g = 9.8 m /s^2
G = 6.673 ? 10^-11
  • 0
g is the acceleration due to gravity
G is the Proportionality constant used to calculate the force of attraction between any two objects.
  • 0
this is the difference

  • 0
g is the gravitational force exerted by any planet. For earth it's 9.8m/s2. G can be g but g cannot be G.
  • 0

and their values?

  • 0
1. G is for gravitational constant1. g is for acceleration due to gravity
  • 0

thank you friends

  • 0

G is for gravitational constant

and

g is for acceleration due to gravity

  • 0
Small (g) is the gravitational pull of the earth which is 9.8m/sand capital (G) is the universal proportionality constant which is 6.67 x 10-11N. The capital (G) shows the force of attraction between two or more objects.
