 February 19, 2003, 16:20 Gravity #1 Pravir Kumar Rai Guest   Posts: n/a If X-Z axis is in horizontal plane and +Y axis is upwards( gravity is in -Y axis). Now if the flow is in -Y direction what shud be the value of 'g'?? Is it -9.81 or +9.81??? Does the value of gravity depends on the direction of flow or it depends on the orientation of the coorodinate axis??

 February 20, 2003, 21:01 Re: Gravity #3 Pravir Kumar Rai Guest   Posts: n/a If my model is drawn such that flow is in +Y direction and hence g =-9.81m/s^2. Now I rotate the model and the axis by 180 degrees such that the flow is again in +Y axis but the difference is that +Y axis is now pointing down in the direction of gravity. Would g=+9.81 in this case?????
