Re: Write It Do It B/C

We barely did any practice, you could call it experimenting--he would see how un-detailed he could get and still come out with the right result. Frankly, that didn't work. What didn't work?

Re: Fermi Questions Marathon

At a given instant, how many photons are in a room of your choice (with electric lighting turned on)? *Also consider only the photons emitted by the electric lights, ignoring thermal radiation of other objects, virtual photons, etc. After someone answers this, can you please explain it?
