G is the gravitational constant. it's approximate value is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

G = (6.67428[tex]\pm[/tex]0.0010)*10(power -11) m(power 3) kg(power-1) s(power-2)

= (6.67428[tex]\pm[/tex]0.0010)*10(power -11) N m(power 2) kg(power-2)

= (6.67428[tex]\pm[/tex]0.0010)*10(power -8) cm(power 3) g(power-1) s(power-2)

now what is this? is this even an absolute number? because i want to use it in the formula:

a1 = G(m2/r*r)

and i need to have an actual number for a1.

I don't know how to do it.

and i dont know how to type the power sign so i put (power 3) etc everywhere. sorry.
