With this formula, you should apparently be able to work out the schwarzschild radius with 2GM over c^2(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

but it shows the gravitational constant on google being:

G = 6.67300 × 10-11 m3 kg-1 s-2

Can someone please explain this to me? - Because then I would be able to work out the schwarzschild radius and thus then I would be able to work out the gradient of a graph showing at distance x and x+Δx I would be able to show in percentage the decrease of the effect of the gravitational field of the mass (being a planet) on space and time in terms of an object exiting the surface of the planet into space until it is no longer affected (that is my plan) but i need someone to explain how the m^3 kg^-1 s^-2 works? - How do i represent that as my final answer????? and can the index number (+ decimal) be different? as in, is that number relative to earth??? or the actual number? - I think its relative to a group that actually researched the number to x number of decimal places :$ -

Please help with the notation, thank you ever so much readers and physics guys :D much respect :)
