# lateral acceleration g force

The gravitational force equivalent, or, more commonly, g-force, is a measurement of the type of force per unit mass – typically acceleration – that causes a perception of weight, with a g-force of 1 g equal to the conventional value of gravitational acceleration on Earth, g, of about 9.8 m/s 2. Within all of the suspension upgrades available for your vehicle, the most overlooked component is the sway bar link. So assuming the car in question had an equal split of mass on the right and left wheels when stationary this would result in: Therefore, a car set up like the above with a static mass of 1000kg now has the following left and right masses when cornering: If the left and right static masses were different to each other then calculate the percentage of the total mass present at each wheel and then subtract and add the LLT percentage as before. e’’ = Distance of COG offset from the centre line in meters. But of course the rider also feels the force of gravity pulling them downwards.
