# Gravitational Acceleration

## Description

Gravity gives weight to physical objects and causes them to fall toward the ground when dropped.

If Μ is a point mass or the mass of a sphere with homogeneous mass distribution, the force field outside the sphere is isotropic, i.e., depends only on the distance r from the center of the sphere.

Gravitational Acceleration is the acceleration of an object caused by the force of gravity from another object.

## Variables

a | Acceleration (m/s^{2}) |

G | Newtonian constant of gravitation |

M | Mass (kg) |

r | Distance (m) |
