Schwarzschild Radius and gravitational constant

  1. Dec 3, 2008 #1
    hi, i am trying to figure out the Schwarzschild Radius of myself but i don't know how to find the gravitational constant in the equation. G=6.67 x 10-11N(M/kg)2. What do i plug in on the N(M/kg)2? is that my mass and KG? earths? not quite sure... please let me know. Thank you

    i am an idiot, didn't realize N(M/kg)2 was a unit of measurement. :frown:
