The Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. Utterly irreplaceable, invaluable
reference. It contains all of that and more. Units of measure, constants
and formulae, astronomical indicies (though not as thorough as the other
books dedicated to those... trust me on this, I use those at work), with
absolutely no instruction as to how to apply these numbers physically. I
suppose for that you need a textbook... Still, a lot of the data is what
you want. I suggest you look in your local library.
