G-force A physical force equivalent to one unit of gravity that is multiplied during rapid changes of direction or velocity. Skiers experience G-forces as they turn, absorb moguls, rollers and compressions and the landing of a jump or stopping.

The g-force of an object is its acceleration relative to free-fall. The unit of measure used is informally but commonly known as the "gee", symbolized as g (also G and g)
