Hi again,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was able to solve the previous problems I had, with some study over the net and some books.

Now I have a different problem: I have a routine that uses Mu (GM) for calculations; for the planets, Mu = GaussK * GaussK * ( 1 + mass ), where GaussK is the Gaussian constant (0.01720209895) and mass is the mass of the planet divided by the mass of the sun ( for earth, mass = 1/328900.56, for example ).

Now, I want to use the same routine, but for the orbit of the moon around the earth. Wich value of Mu must I use to maintain the proportion and the functionality of the routine?

Please someone answer as soon as possible.
