Geometrized Units

A system of units whereby certain fundamental constants (G, c, k, and h) are set to unity. This makes calculations in certain theories, such as general relativity, much easier to deal with, since these constants appear frequently.

As a result of converting to geometrized units, all quantities are expressed in terms of a unit of distance, traditionally the cm.
