The value of gravitation constant is G = 6.67 × 10⁻¹¹ Nm²/kg² in SI units. Convert it into CGS system of units.

The dimensional formula of G is [M⁻¹L³T⁻²].

Conversion of units is done on the face that the product of the numerical value (n) and its corresponding unit (u) is a constant i.e. n[u] = constant or n₁[u₁] = n₂[u₂].

Thus, for the universal gravitational constant G, we can write

In this way, we can find the value of G in cgs system of units.
