Babylonian equations |

It is also common to use geometric units which are units in which ##c=G=1## (so mass and energy have the same units as length and time). You cannot also have ##\hbar=1## in these units.

In natural units the Schwarzschild radius is ##R_S=2GM##. I suppose that in geometric units it is ##R_S=2M##. In SI units it is ##2GM/c^2##. The ##c^2## makes a big difference and is easy to forget!

The document contains a list in SI units of the values of universal constants and other handy constants like the mass of the sun. The table also gives the conversion factors from natural to SI units, which are derived from their dimensions. Two examples of their use are given at the end followed by a list of small and large prefixes (Terra, peta, pico etc) and their meanings.
