Since you're looking for a simple article about "What is 'acceleration of gravity'", you've found the right place.

So the fastest answer isβ¦

The acceleration imparted to bodies by the attractive force of the earth; has an international standard value of 980,665 cm/s 2 but varies with latitude and elevation. Also known as acceleration of free fall; apparent gravity.

**Acceleration due to gravity is the acceleration gained by an object due to gravitational force.It has both magnitude and direction, hence, itβs a vector quantity.**

Acceleration due to gravity is represented by g.

The standard value of g on the surface of the earth at sea level is 9.8 m/s2.

## According to wikipediaβ¦

Well, I looked at the wikipedia and they have defined βaccelerationβ like this:

Acceleration is the rate of change of the velocity of an object with respect to time. Accelerations are vector quantities (in that they have magnitude and direction). The orientation of an object's acceleration is given by the orientation of the net force acting on that object.
