Okay Zebra, we definitely agree that:
1 cubic light year = 8.46 × 10[sup]38[/sup] cubic km
Universe Volume = 1.4137e+31 cubic light years
and a handy converter to check your work is at:
and volume calculations can be done at:
although my number came out correctly, I forgot to put the exponent in the calculation which should be:
I get (4/3)PI(1.5X10[sup]10[/sup])[sup]3[/sup] Light Years
Geez, volume calculations can be very tricky. I previewed my calculation, saw it already had ONE exponent but I forgot to show that raised to another exponent. You figure 1 exponent per number always looks right.
So, I guess we all are guilty of committing a few mathematical* faux pas * in this thread. :smack:
(I am SO glad my Ultar Converter was right though).
