I just don't believe your maths. Would you care to check it?

Shouldn't you subtract the exponential?

I don't want to know the answer. But as a little hint, what's 108-103?

You subtract the exponential when you divide.

am / an = am - n

It's 6:20am and I haven't slept!

But that doesn't alter the fact that something is wrong. As I said, hydrogen is far and away the most abundant element.

Well I'll tell you one thing, I'm not going to do a physical count to check if C4M is right or wrong.

Anyway, you've all missed one crucial point, the question, if you would care to look, is 'How many attoms are in the universe?"

So why are you all postulating about how many atoms there are in the universe???

Dense FOG.

Not me, silly. You're upside-down compared to us in the northern hemisphere so everything here must look upside-down to you.
