For example, in scientific notation the universal gravitation constant G is this according to my textbook:

G = 6.67 x 10

^{-11}N*m

^{2}/kg

^{2}

That just looks like a mess to me. Newton-meters squared over kilograms squared? I am not sure what this means, and what I can "compare" it to or what I can use to visualize something (weighing this much? Is this a weight?)

It was hard to explain my problem here so I am hoping this was coherent.
