[Phys-L] What is the best value and uncertainty to assign to G?


we have had a discussion on gravitational constant in the past ("New gravitational constant", starting from 22 Jan 2008). However, there is an interesting article in Physics Today on the quest for a better value of G: <>

"The search for Newton’s constant" By Clive Speake and Terry Quinn

Among other things, they write that "it appears that we know G to only three significant figures". Astonishing!
