The fixing of the gaussian gravitational constant and the corresponding geocentric gravitational constant(1)

  • Samuel Herrick (a1)

Abstract

The author analyses the advantages of the use of the gaussian heliocentric gravitational constant. He proposes that a geocentric gravitational constant should be defined in an analogous way, that would present similar advantages.

Résumé. — L'auteur analyse les avantages de l'utilisation de la constante de la gravitation héliocentrique. Il propose qu'une constante de la gravitation géocentrique soit définie d'une manière analogue. Cette constante présenterait les mêmes avantages.

Zusammenfassung. — Verf. untersucht die Vorteile der Verwendung der Gaussschen heliozentrischen Gravitationskonstanten. Er schlägt vor, eine geozentrische Gravitationskonstante zu definieren, was ähnliche Vorteile bieten würde.

Резюме. — Автор анализирует выгоды пользования гелиоцентрической гравитационной постоянной. Он предлагает установить аналогичное определение геоцентрической гравитационной постоянной, предоставляющей те-же преимущества.
