Have you guys noticed how the acceleration of gravity is almost equal to pi squared?
Yea but you have to remember that the acceleration due to gravity changes with elevation.
If you found two universal constants that were related like e and i then you have something big.
And of course it only works in metric units.
Similairly there afre about 10milion pi seconds in a year.
A second is a milli-fortnight and an inch is an attoparsec.
Hm? g is 175.55 furlongs/minute^2. How is that almost equal to pi^2? Or does it only work in some arbitrarily selected set of units?
mgb_phys has answered that.
Anyway, is there any point to this thread other than "spot the coincidence"?
If you select units correctly, everything is possible. Light speed is almost exactly 1 feet/ns.
Yes, I know. I just thought a hard example like that might help show the OP how absurd this sort of numerology is.
Fair enough. Well, I think we've established that this is, as you say, simply numerology. Thus, this thread is done.
