The Standard Gravitational Parameter calculator computes the Standard Gravitational Parameter for a body based on the mass of the body (M) and the Universal Gravity Constant (G).

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:

  • (M) This is the mass of the body

Standard Gravitational Parameter (μ):  The calculator return the parameter in m³/s².
