formconstants sets the value of constants that relate to
star formation for use in commands such as viewgas. The star
formation algorithm is from Katz (Ap. J. 391:502, 1992).
All the constants are in system units with G (the gravita-
tional constant) equal to 1 and temperature in degrees Kel-
is the constant that is linearly proportional to the
star formation rate.

is the constant that decides how cool the gas can be
before the cooling time is ignored.
is the constant that decides when the Jean's cri-
teria can be ignored.
