Thursday – We have a winner!

Congratulations to Simon who gave the best answer to the eggy challenge that was posed some time ago now:

“A medium-sized egg (assuming that it’s in its shell) weighs about 45g. An electron weighs 9.1×10^-31kg.
So, if you convert the egg to kg, you get 0.045 divided by 9.1×10^-31, which is 4.94505495×10^28 electrons in the internet right now (or 49,450,549,450,000,000,000,000,000,000 electrons).”

Eggcellent job! A prize will be laid on your desk tomorrow no doubt!
