The problem is to determine the SI units of G in the following equation:

F = GMm/r^2

(where F is force (mass * acceleration), M and m are the masses of two objects, and r is a distance)

which is, of course, Newton's law of universal gravitation.

I would be greatly appreciative if someone could walk through the steps needed to make this determination.
