This page is about Fun and Answers. The idea is to calculate something using physical constants and then do a few more and pretty soon it's like eating popcorn and you've done 30 or 40 calculations of physical results.
List of ideas to calculate
- How many photons can I see that bounced off of me and then the moon? (Maybe I better hold up a mirror.)
- Where are all the Joules in the EMS system (relative energies)? Tidal drag calc also.
- How long should the sun last?
- Is earth 4.5 or 4.6 by old, how old is the lunar Genesis rock?
- and was the Cambrian explosion at -0.5by? How long were relative days? (Just a little timeline stuff...)
