Anyone know of a way to solve for gravity of a planetary body without using the gravitational constant?
Solve what? You haven't stated what is given.Anyone know of a way to solve for gravity ...
You were given a method and you rejected it because you said the information needed wasn't available. Are you going to give the same response for any method given? What information is available? We can't answer the question if you won't tell us the constraints.It’s not a specific value calculation. I’m asking about method. Do you know of a way to find a body’s gravity, in equation form perhaps, without using the gravitational constant to find the answer.
Where you coming from? I haven’t rejected anything. It’s a general question, not a specific problem. No other info needed.You were given a method and you rejected it because you said the information needed wasn't available. Are you going to give the same response for any method given?

But what can be used?... without using the gravitational constant to find the answer.
You rejected the use of satellite trajectory data.Where you coming from? I haven’t rejected anything. It’s a general question, not a specific problem. No other info needed.
Drop something and measure its acceleration.If you can think of several other methods that require different known data then list them because that’s exactly what I want to know.
And you're awfully demanding when it comes to free help.You’re a staff mentor? Dude. You have a terrible disposition.
PF is not for discussion of personal speculations or original research.I’ve found a way to calculate any body’s gravity (the acceleration variety) independent of the gravitational constant and just wanted to make sure it is unique before submission for print.
