Complete, Unabridged Guide to G-force. Get the information you need--fast! This comprehensive guide offers a thorough view of key knowledge and detailed insight. It's all you need. Here's part of the content - you would like to know it all? Delve into this book today!..... : The same happens in a dragster (see illustration) when it is changing velocity in a direction at right angles to the acceleration of gravity: such changes must be produced by accelerations that are appropriately measured in g-force units in the horizontal direction, since they produce g-force effects in that direction. ... If a g-force is vertically upward and applied by the ground or the floor of an elevator to a standing person, most of the body experiences compressive stress which at any height, if multiplied by the area, is the related mechanical force, which is the product of the g-force and the supported mass (the mass above the level of support, including arms hanging down from above that level). ... With compressive force counted as negative tensile force, the rate of change of the tensile force in the direction of the g-force, per unit mass (the change between parts of the object such that the slice of the object between them has unit mass), is equal to the g-force plus the non-gravitational external forces on the slice, if any (counted positive in the direction opposite to the g-force). ... If the pilot were suddenly to pull back on the stick and make his plane accelerate upwards at 9. 8 m/s2, the total g-force on his body is 2 g, half of which comes from the seat pushing the pilot to resist gravity, and half from the seat pushing the pilot to cause his upward acceleration-a change in velocity which also is a proper acceleration because it also differs from a free fall trajectory. There is absolutely nothing that isn't thoroughly covered in the book. It is straightforward, and does an excellent job of explaining all about G-force in key topics and material. There is no reason to invest in any other materials to learn about G-force. You'll understand it all.Inside the Guide: G-force, Top Fuel, Thrust-to-weight ratio, Standard gravity, Sprint (missile), Specific force, Space gun, Space Shuttle, Shock and vibration data logger, Shock (mechanics), Saturn V, Roller coaster, Rocket, Proper acceleration, Peak ground acceleration, Orders of magnitude (acceleration), Metre per second squared, Luge, Load factor (aeronautics), John Stapp, High-G training, g-suit, G-LOC, Euthanasia Coaster, Bugatti Veyron, Artificial gravity, Accelerometer
