I would like to know if it is possible to "reverse engineer" the formula below to find (G) if Ve, M and r are all known values.

Ve = sqrt{2GM/r}

Ve would be escape velocity, G would be gravitational constant, M would be mass of planet and r would be radius of planet.

I hope I am explaining myself correctly here.

In other words how would I go about reversing the formula Ve = sqrt(2GM/r) so that is begins with G =

Kind Regards

Edwin.
