                                  You know, are you talking heads seem to miss the fact that Kevin Durant normally gets injured around this time or close to it. All that happens is he gets healthy and destroys in the playoffs and then wins a championship, So just stop

                                              Media g-force

                                              This article is about a type of acceleration. For other uses, see G-Force (disambiguation).

                                              This article is about effects of long acceleration. For transient acceleration, see mechanical shock.

                                              In straight and level flight, lift (L) equals weight (W). In a banked turn of 60°, lift equals double the weight (L=2W). The pilot experiences 2 g and a doubled weight. The steeper the bank, the greater the g-forces.

                                              This top-fuel dragster can accelerate from zero to 160 kilometres per hour (99 mph) in 0.86 seconds. This is a horizontal acceleration of 5.3 g. Combined with the vertical g-force in the stationary case the Pythagorean theorem yields a g force of 5.4 g.

                                              The g-force (with g from gravitational) is a measurement of the type of acceleration that causes a perception of weight. Despite the name, it is incorrect to consider g-force a fundamental force, as "g-force" (lower case character) is a type of acceleration that can be measured with an accelerometer. Since g-force accelerations indirectly produce weight, any g-force can be described as a "weight per unit mass" (see the synonym specific weight). When the g-force acceleration is produced by the surface of one object being pushed by the surface of another object, the reaction-force to this push produces an equal and opposite weight for every unit of an object's mass. The types of forces involved are transmitted through objects by interior mechanical stresses. The g-force acceleration (save for certain electromagnetic force influences) is the cause of an object's acceleration in relation to free-fall.[1][2]

                                              The g-force acceleration experienced by an object is due to the vector sum of all non-gravitational and non-electromagnetic forces acting on an object's freedom to move. In practice, as noted, these are surface-contact forces between objects. Such forces cause stresses and strains on objects, since they must be transmitted from an object surface. Because of these strains, large g-forces may be destructive.

                                              Gravitation acting alone does not produce a g-force, even though g-forces are expressed in multiples of the acceleration of a standard gravity. Thus, the standard gravitational acceleration at the Earth's surface produces g-force only indirectly, as a result of resistance to it by mechanical forces. These mechanical forces actually produce the g-force acceleration on a mass. For example, the 1 g force on an object sitting on the Earth's surface is caused by mechanical force exerted in the upward direction by the ground, keeping the object from going into free-fall. The upward contact-force from the ground ensures that an object at rest on the Earth's surface is accelerating relative to the free-fall condition. (Free fall is the path that the object would follow when falling freely toward the Earth's center). Stress inside the object is ensured from the fact that the ground contact forces are transmitted only from the point of contact with the ground.

                                              Objects allowed to free-fall in an inertial trajectory under the influence of gravitation only, feel no g-force acceleration, a condition known as zero-g (which means zero g-force). This is demonstrated by the "zero-g" conditions inside a freely falling elevator falling toward the Earth's center (in vacuum), or (to good approximation) conditions inside a spacecraft in Earth orbit. These are examples of coordinate acceleration (a change in velocity) without a sensation of weight. The experience of no g-force (zero-g), however it is produced, is synonymous with weightlessness.

                                              In the absence of gravitational fields, or in directions at right angles to them, proper and coordinate accelerations are the same, and any coordinate acceleration must be produced by a corresponding g-force acceleration. An example here is a rocket in free space, in which simple changes in velocity are produced by the engines, and produce g-forces on the rocket and passengers

                                                The Most Famous Failed Experiment

                                                By Sarah Wells

                                                1710

                                                It’s been just over 110 years since Einstein published his groundbreaking papers in 1905 that revolutionized physics as we know it and ushered in the quantum age. Among these papers were his theories on special relativity (not to be confused with general relativity, which he published 10 years later in 1915). His theories on special relativity discussed such strange things as length contraction and time dilation when an observer moved at speeds approaching the speed of light (3 x 108 meters per second, or c). While Einstein was a brilliant physicist, he by no means developed these theories in a vacuum. All great science comes from collaboration and parallel research. Results from an experiment from 1887 would go on to support Einstein’s theories of special relativity and help drive the quantum age alongside it. The experiment in question, the Michelson-Morley experiment, would become one of the most famous failed experiments in history.

                                                Image from quantum-reality.net

                                                The idea behind the Michelson-Morley experiment can be simplified to the analogy of a person swimming in a river with a current. Depending on whether or not the person is swimming with or against the current, his or her relative velocity (the speed of travel) will change. For Albert Michelson and Edward Morley the river is a material (or medium) called “ether” and the person swimming is light. From ideas presented by physicist James Clerk Maxwell years earlier, Michelson and Morley knew that light was a wave. From daily experiences they had some preconceived notions about waves. For example, we can observe that in order to hear sound, the sound waves must move (or propagate) throughsomething (e.g., air or water). Without a material to move through, there is no sound to be heard. If this is true for sound, thought Michelson and Morley, then surely it’s true for light as well. “Ether” was the name given to the hypothetical medium that surrounded all things that light propagated through (even the vacuum of space).

                                                Their experiment set out to measure different speeds of light depending on whether or not the light was “swimming” with or against the ether’s current. The results were… unexpected. Michelson and Morley saw that no matter which way the light “swam,” it maintained a constant velocity of c. If we look back to our river analogy that would mean that no matter how fast the current flowed against the swimmer, he or she would continue to swim at the same constant pace no matter what. But how? This goes against classical physics and our very intuitions about motion! What the results of this experiment meant for physics was that there was no absolute point of view (or reference frame) to measure events—that everything was relative.

                                                Now, I must admit, Michelson is dear to my heart. At my school, Clark University, you’ll be hard pressed to take a physics course without hearing his name. This is not just because of his contributions to quantum theory but because he was the first head of our physics department in 1889! For his contributions to science, Michelson became the first American to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1907. The Michelson-Morley experiment demonstrates many key aspects of the scientific process, most notably that when it comes to science there’s really no such thing as failure.
