That gave him the

gravitational constant, and that in turn gave him the mass of the Earth.

where G is the

gravitational constant, M the mass of the star, R the radius of the star, [m.

The cosmological constant [LAMBDA] is linked to the

gravitational constant G by the corrected field equations of Einstein.

where G is the

gravitational constant, M and m the respective masses of the two bodies in interaction, and R the distance between the barycenters of the two masses.

where M is the mass in Suns, C is the circumference of the satellite's circular orbit in kilometers, P is the orbital period in seconds, and G is Newton's

gravitational constant per solar mass (1.

where v is the light-wave frequency, G the

gravitational constant, M the mass producing the gravitational field, r the distance between the center of gravity of the mass M and the photon, c the speed of light, and h the Planck constant.

One set of findings offers the most precise value thus far for the

gravitational constant, so-called Big G, which relates mass and distance to the strength of gravity in Newton's law.

Measuring the

gravitational constant The news that three respected research groups had independently produced values for the strength of the gravitational force (G) that disagreed significantly with the currently accepted number and with each other created a considerable stir last year (SN: 4/29/95, p.

2] is the pure Euclidean Laplacian, G is the universal

gravitational constant and f is the gravitational scalar potential.

Physicists are seeking to pin down the surprisingly elusive

gravitational constant.

Carefully surveying the seafloor, the sea level and other variables, the scientists determined the

gravitational constant G to an accuracy of 2 parts in 1,000.

e] units, [gamma] is the

gravitational constant, [[rho].
