What is the order of magnitude?
What do you mean by "benefit?" The question, as it stands, doesn't make any sense to me.what is the benifit of the order of magnitude?
It is often the case in some branches of physics, that in attempting to solve an equation numerically it is necessary to guess the value of some of the variables. A common approach is to make an "order of magnitude estimation". Although this approach won't return a precise number, it can put a constraint on the numerical size of the quantity of interest, which may provide some further qualitative understanding.Thank you billiards for helping me.
