    The gravitational constant is:
    G = K (Me + Mp) Mp / 8 QQ

    The gravitational constant G equals the coulombs constant K times (the mass of the electron plus the mass of the proton) multiplied by the mass of the proton and divided by 8 times the charge squared.

    This formula comes from the Einsteinian solution mass =charge proposed by him 80 years ago. Comparison charts for that solution shown that the gravitational constant G and Coulombs constant K both have the same units of meters cubed/ coulomb second squared.

    Although this constant is basically constant here, it increases when the energy density is very high. In this cases super electrons and super protons will have greater mass/energy while the charges remain the same. In the black hole, the gravitational constant is huge.

    Is the unit correct? The gravitational constant has the unit kg<sup>−1</sup>*m<sup>3</sup>*s<sup>−2</sup>. Your formula however has the unit kg<sup>3</sup>*m<sup>3</sup>*s<sup>−2</sup>*C<sup>−4</sup>.

    I’d suggest putting the charge squared as the numerator and the product of the masses as the denominator (leaving k as it is), which would give the correct unit for G. But then I substituted the values into this formula and, what the! I got an answer of approximately 6.6×10<sup>26</sup> m<sup>3</sup>*kg<sup>−1</sup>*s<sup>−2</sup>!

    The actual value is approximately 6.7×10<sup>−11</sup> m<sup>3</sup>*kg<sup>−1</sup>*s<sup>−2</sup>. Looks like you need to take the reciprocal of everything except the k and add a scaling factor of 10<sup>−37</sup>.

    Are you aware of the Cavendish and the Boys experiments?

    Well, these experiments are what set the value of the Gravitational Constant.

    Cavendish used 'lead' balls while Boys used 'gold' balls that are purer elements with almost no isotopes.
    So it was more accurate than the earlier Cavendish experiments.
