Thank you.

Yes please, that would be Cool.
If anyone is interested, let me know and I can add a post for how to calculate the size of each planet as a purely geometric function.

The Gravity Conspiracy perhaps coming from the conspiracy on Tesla.
His Dynamic Theory of Gravity was never published.
So now we have two conspiracies.

"Fudge factors" and assumptions of a "missing" planet.
Adjusting data and "constants" to force fit a a model is usually frowned upon.

BTW, how are you doing on calculating the acceleration acting on a stationary object in a gravity field? How about providing the period of a satellite orbiting the Earth at a distance of, say 53,000 miles. No fair using G and the Mass of the Earth since they obviously don't count. I will let you ignore the mass of the satellite though, it really won't matter much unless it's a really big satellite.
Originally posted by atlasastroA great way to settle this, I guess, is if you would provide ATS with a formula for calculating optimum altitude for Geostationary orbits in satellites, without using the gravitational constant or even the geocentric gravitational constant.
My equation ONLY uses an integer (4), pi, a distance (r) and the value of K uses only a distance and a time. There is no way to derive a gravitational constant or even to hide one using only distance and time.
Like you say, you only need use the interger, pi and K which is its velocity(orbit time) and its radius......BUT you don't know the radius, because you actually need to include certain forces(including the G constant), in order to derive an altitude. An altitude which will then become your radius, that your formula is actually dependent on. This presents somewhat of a paradox.
