`mu = G* "M" `

Enter a value for all fields

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.

- Force of Gravity computes the force of gravity between two bodies.
- Apsis-Apocenter (minimum speed) computes the minimum velocity at the maximum distance of an orbit.
- Apsis-Apocenter (maximum distance) computes the greatest distance from the center of gravity in an orbit.
- Apsis-Pericenter (maximum speed) computes maximum velocity at the minimum distance of an orbit.
- Apsis-Pericenter (minimum distance) computes the minimum distance from the center of mass in an orbit.
- Standard Gravitational Parameter

The formula for the Standard Gravitational Parameter is:

μ = M•G

where:

- μ is the Standard Gravitational Parameter for a body
- M is the mass of the body
- G is the Universal Gravity Constant.

The Standard Gravitational Parameter is used in celestial mechanics for the prediction of a smaller body about the main body of mass.
