um, WHY would you want to do that calculation?
You don't appreciate how cool it is, Monique??
I do, I am impressed you are so creative..
(-8 C) / (4 * pi * electric constant * ((2.45967 m)^2))?
Try this one:
NOW I'm impressed
The equation I entered was actually just Coulomb's law -- a simple equation in physics to find the strength of an electric field.
Hehehehe... how about some wacky units?
Wow, a built-in calculator for google. Never noticed it. Fascinating.
Google is an amazing search engine. I especially like the Groups and News Section.
To top it all off, the whole site runs on Linux, which automatically makes it even cooler.
(-8 C)/(4*pi*epsilon_0 *(2.45967 m)^2) in (newtons/coulomb)
(-8 C) / (4 * pi * electric constant * ((2.45967 m)^2)) = -1.18844121 ¡Ñ 1010 Newtons / Coulomb
How clever !!
However when I tried this, it couldn't calculate the answer for me. When I changed m (meter) to mm, it worked fine. But when I changed C to nC, it didn't work.
Is there any rule for the input?
I'm not sure why it doesn't like nC, but it's fine with "nanocoulombs:"
