How does one figure out the units of measure for the cosmological constant? In the Einstein Field Equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\[Rab - \frac{1}{2}Rgab + \Lambda gab = 8\pi Tab\][/tex]

Lambda is a constant but the units of measure for gab and Tab differ for each combination of indices. For example T^{00}is an energy density. So what is the measure for g^{00}so that Lambda comes out to a measure of one over meters squared?

Thanks.
