# Example: Magnitude of forces

The table below shows the magnitude of some forces - as multiples of the force of gravity FG - for the M80 bullet (7.62 x 51 NATO) at standard air density (r = 1.25 kg/m3).

 M80 bullet 7.62 x 51 Nato Mass [g] 9.45 Calibre [mm] 7.82
 Force Ma = 2.5 Ma = 0.6 Coriolis FC/FG 0.013 0.003 Centrifugal FZ/FG 0.003 0.003 Drag FD/FG 70.2 1.7 Lift FL/FG (d=1°) 9.4 0.4

In the table above, the relative magnitude of the lift force appears to be relatively large. This is due to the fact that an angle of yaw of 1° has been assumed. If a bullet flies stable and the transient yaw has been damped out, the maximum yaw however is much smaller than 1° and consequently the lift force  is also much smaller.
