You have negotiated with the Omicronians for a base on the planet Omicron Persei 7. The architects working with you to plan the base need to know the acceleration of a freely falling object at the surface of the planet in order to adequately design the structures. The Omicronians have told you that the value is  gOP7=7.29 flurg/grom^2, but your architects use the units meters/second^2, and from your previous experience you know that both the Omicronians and your architects are terrible at unit conversion. Thus, it's up to you to do the unit conversion. Fortunately, you know the unit equality relationships: 5.24flurg=1meter and 1grom=0.493second. What is the value of  gOP7 in the units your architects will use, in meter per second squared?
