just a grain

a peasent in anchient china done a thing for his emperor, which the empror liked, he said "ill give you anything you want"...
the peasent said, you like to play chess?... give me a grain of rice, and for every square double the number, the empror thoguth it was going to be simple so he got a handfulf of rice.... NOT SO

the teacher told us that today at tafe, we were on about numbers, google, and googleplex, (which will take over 500 years for a computer to write) its 10^10^100.. and there is not enough matter in the universe to write it all(i dunno how... but its a big number)
so i decided to work it out.... its 2^64 which is 18446744073709551616 grains of rice.... i went to a site, and it said there are 1000 grains of rice to the 25 grams.... so. can someone work out how many tonnes? i got something like 4 billion tonnes, but i dont trust my maths......


you heard that there rae as many grains of sand on earth as there are stars in the universe? wrong.. someone done it, iwth the weight of the earth. there are 2000 billion billion grains of sand on earth... and worked out sum large thing to the tune of 45000 billion billion stars in the universe... life on another planet... i would rekon quite high?!?

and we worked out with the population density of new york every single person every one of the 6 billion of us could fit in tasmania....

what a fun day at tafe ey people! haha

I thought the saying was 'There are more stars in the sky than grains of sand in the world' Well in that case then its a true saying.

Re: just a grain

and you could learn to spell too.....that would be the most BASIC thing of any engineering.
also for every 1 person there are about 6 chickens and for every 1 person there are something like 200000 cockroaches or something.
just more useless info.

Re: just a grain

pretty sure a googol is 1 and 1000 zeros a googolplex is 1 and 1 million zeros
but i could be (and probably am) wrong
googol is a number google is a search engine
