Can someone explain the following formula to me? I would like to know what m, kg, and s are. At glance I believe this is the cross product of 6.67384 and the other half of the formula. However I am very unsure on how to continue into solving this for any specific value. I believe m is for the mass of a given object? A quick step by step solution of this formula would be helpful.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

G = 6.67384 Ã— 10^-11 m^3 kg^-1 s^-2

Thanks,

Jamie
