We present results of ten years of measurements of the gravitational constant made using an evacuated torsion balance. We obtained the valueG=(6.6729±0.0005)·10−11 N·m2·kg−2. We have determined the major destabilizing factors accompanying the measurement process and have estimated the contribution from different sources of error. 

Reflections on a measurement of the gravitational constant using a beam balance and 13 tons of mercury

The measurement of the gravi- tational constant G performed by researchers at the University of Zürich, Switzerland, was published in 2006 and the strengths and weaknesses of this approach are discussed.

Investigation of variable gravitational gradients and specific features of the microseismic background with a torsion balance

This paper is an attempt at a brief description of the problem of measuring the gravitation field characteristics, namely, the first and second derivatives of the gravitation potential. The logics of

Calculation of the gravitational constant at measurements by a dynamic method

We demonstrate the perspective of extending the functional abilities of the gravitational constant calculation methodologies for a simple shape of the interacting bodies. We consider the special case

Beam balance helps settle down measurement of the gravitational constant

In recent years, measurements of Newton’s G have been disconcertingly inconsistent. Perhaps the problem is the traditional torsion balance.

Determination of the Gravitational Constant

The Newtonian gravitational constant G was the first known fundamental constant of physics. Nevertheless, the measurement of its value still seem to be in a rather sad shape. Recently, the CODATA

The Newtonian gravitational constant: Modern status of measurement and the new CODATA value

Measurements of G, the Newtonian constant of gravitation, in laboratory experiments have a more than two hundred years’ history. Although the accuracy of the best modern experimental measurements of

A search for laws in the results of gravitational constant measurements

A spectral analysis has been performed on time series of the results of gravitational constant G measurements in the period of 1985–2003. A manifestation of cosmic rhythmics in the measurement

Status of measurement of the Newtonian gravitational constant G

A precise knowledge of the Newtonian gravitational constant G has an important place in physics and is of considerable metrological interest. Although G was the first physical constant to be

Status of the experiments on measurement of the Newtonian gravitational constant

Due to the weakness of gravity, the accuracy of the Newtonian gravitational constant G is essentially below the accuracy of other fundamental constants. The current value of G, recommended by CODATA
