Gravitational Constant

Gravitational constant is defined as force of gravitation acting between two bodies of unit masses separated by unit distance from their centers.

The value of gravitational constant is experimentally calculated by Lord Henry Cavendish (1798) even after death of Newton (1642- 1727) by using torsion balance. Its value is 6.67 X 10-11 N m2/kg2
