Einstein's Constant under the Planck Microscope

Authors: Espen Gaarder Haug

As Haug has shown in a long series of papers, Newton's gravitational constant is almost for sure a composite constant. What is this exotic animal that is meters cubed divided by kg and seconds squared? It is difficult to get any intuition from the gravitational constant alone, except from understanding that it is a constant we can measure empirically and use to get Newton's formula to match actual observations. Newton's gravitational constant is a composite constant that consists of the more fundamental constants. This means we also can rewrite Einstein's constant in a more intuitive form where it becomes independent of big G.
