- Acceleration due to gravity : The acceleration of a ponderable object, which is near the surface of the Earth, due to the Earth's gravitational force.
- Classical mechanics : The science of mechanics, which is concerned with the set of physical laws governing and mathematically describing the motions of bodies and aggregates of bodies geometrically distributed within a certain boundary under the action of a system of forces.
- Force : Vector quantity that tends to produce an acceleration of a body in the direction of its application.
- Gravitation : The tendency of objects with mass to accelerate toward each other.
- Kilogram-force : A unit of force which will accelerate 1 kilogram of mass to 9.80665 m/s2, the standard average acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (referred to as gn).
- Mass : The total amount of a substance, or alternatively, the total energy of a substance.
- Momentum : mass of a particle times its velocity (a vector).
- Pound-force : A measurement unit of force which will accelerate 1 pound of mass to 9.80665 m/s2 (≈ 32.17405 ft/s2), the standard average acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (referred to as gn).
- Weight : The force with which a body is attracted to Earth or another celestial body, equal to the product of the object's mass and the acceleration of gravity.
