Heres another quizlet set that I made: https://quizlet.com/286400676/fermi-facts-flash-cards/

It's essentially a copy of the Wikipedia "orders of magnitude" pages for stuff like mass, length, energy etc. Those pages are really useful.

quick tip: don't just use the power of ten, also include the coefficent. For example the mass of a electron is 9.1*10^-31 kg not just -31, and would round to -30 if it just asked for mass of a electron

Does anyone know of an accurate number for the number of grains of sand in the world? According to google it's 10^19, but google also says the Sahara along has 10^24 grains... so.... Can anyone help?
