I was having a discussion with a friend about human tolerances of g-force. He believed that the maximum human tolerance of negative g-force is low, in the order of .5 g. I countered, saying that you're able to stand on your head and do not die. An interesting discussion ensued but there was one thing that we couldn't figure out:
Is there any difference between the negative g-force when you are standing on your head (i.e. you're stationary on the ground, just upside down, experiencing gravity) and negative g-force when you're in motion? For example, like when you are riding a roller coaster that has a bump in the track, and you're forced up from your seat?
