comment Why can you remove the gravitational constant from a computer game simulation?
Yes. It's just there because meters, kilograms and seconds have their own historical reasons for being as large they are.If you write a game, you don't have to care about such things. You obviously need to think about how strong gravity should be in your game, but you can tweak the masses to do that. If you want the strength of gravity to change dynamically in the game (say, become stronger over time) you could keep it as a variable, but there's no need for it as a constant.

comment How do we know that C14 decay is exponential and not linear?
+1 for the handful of coins analogy. The entire reason for exponential decay is that there is less stuff left that can decay.
