Please do not weep Nereid, surely the bookmark will turn up sometime!Nereid said:Another way to ask this question might be "what is the maximum energy - in the form of photons - that can be crammed into 1 m^3?"
A good piece of trivia is the photon density, or energy density due to photons, of a chunk of space ... 1 au from the Sun, out in the EKB, at the surface of the Sun, at its core, ... I once found a website with a cool table of this trivia, but I seem to have lost the bookmark
OOM I would say 10^{48} joulesNereid said:Another way to ask this question might be "what is the maximum energy - in the form of photons - that can be crammed into 1 m^3?"
