Paper would travel, in 10 hrs, 4.9 m/s^2 * (10 hrs * 3600 s/hrs)^2, which is 6.35E9 meters. The distance to Alpha Centauri is 4.132E16 meters, giving a Fermi answer of 7.
Someone else can ask a question.

Sorry, no drag....sciencegirl03 wrote:Distance to Alpha Centauri: 4.5light years; i.e. 4.5 * 10^16m\
Paper falls at 1m/sec so in 10 hrs= 36000meters
Fermi answer 11

Approximately 1E12 text messages per year, divide by 3E7 to get to seconds, divide by 1E9 to get to nanoseconds, yields 3E-5 so Fermi Answer: -5
8.6E12 text messages per year, arund 2.7E-4 per nanosecond, so Fermi Answer: -4
The surface area of the moon is around 3E7. Distance to sun E8 so surface area is around 2E17. 3E7/2E17 is 1.5E-10 times 4E26 is 6E16. Distance to moon E5 or about 2E11 surface area. Surface area of earth 5E8/2E11 is 2.5E-3 times 6E16 is 1.5E14 Assuming a 1 percent reflection 1.5E12joules/sec. One svedberg is E-13 one erg is E-7. So 1.5E6 or Fermi 6
energy reflection is around 10 percent but the distance to moon is 3E5 not E5 and would cancel out each other so E6

well, the Earth has a radius of 1100 km iirc, so the new distance is 1000, for a ratio of 10000/11000, or 10/11. Squaring this is still very close to one (1/1.21) so Fermi answer 0.
Wait a screwed up the question. It is E0 but I should've said something like 3000 where the new mass is around E22 and radius is 1000 where the gravitational force is E1 stronger while on the surfacePM2017 wrote:Name wrote:The surface area of the moon is around 3E7.

I feel like this is being overthought. According to the shell theorem (essentially Gauss's law), the only mass that matters should be within a spherical shell at the radius being considered. If you do the math, this gives a linearly decreasing force for a linearly decreasing radius. Thus, just taking the ratio of 5/6 (5000 km compared to around 6000 km) gives you fermi 0.Name wrote: Wait a screwed up the question.
