The gravitational pull on Earth is approximately
9.8 meters per second squared (that is, every
second, you will be moving 9.8 meters per second
toward the center of the Earth than you were a
second ago). 9.8 meters is roughly 32 feet.
Note from moderator: I took the
following paragraph from
wikipedia so our audience can have more
information on this answer: "The gravity of
Earth, which is denoted by g, refers to the
acceleration that the Earth imparts to objects on
or near its surface due to gravity."
