Hello!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm new so I hope I've posted in the right place

One quickie please, if anyone can help me :-)

I hope to get my mass estimates in units of h_{70}^{-1}x 10^{{blah}}M_{sun}

However! I have found some values in units of just x10^{{blah}}M_{sun}(*)

Where they have used h_{50}in their calculations....

In order to convert it, should I divide my mass estimate (*) by this h_{50}(so by '50' ) to get the units of h_{50}^{-1}, then convert it from there into h_{70}?

I'm asking because after I perform that calculation, the masses are significantly smaller than the values which are already quoted in units of h_{70}^{-1}x 10^{{blah}}M_{sun}

Any help or guidance would be super appreciated! I'm quite baffled as to where I am going wrong :S
