If you consider it hopeless to memorize physical constants, it will probably help to find combinations of these constant that relate to the human scale. For instance: The gravitational constant $G$ might be difficult to memorize. This holds for both the units as well as the value. However, multiply this constant by the density of water, take the square ...
