9.80665 m/s^2

And of course this made me think of this:

This one's long, but might be worth your time.


  1. I'm not sure what that says about me but I saw the title and thought, "gravitational acceleration."

    I guess I paid attention in school...

    Nice post, as always!

    1. It says that you are a dinosaur and just don't get it. As explained to me by a local hs science teacher, "if they need to know facts and figures they can look them up. it's far more important for today's utes to understand science in the context of social justice, man."

  2. Well, 1 unit of gravitational acceleration anyhow.

  3. It's about 25 on Jupiter and about 275 (and warm) on Sol. And a bazillion point 278399423 on the surface of a standard black hole.
