What is the physical unit for teleport?

  1. Oct 10, 2014 #1
    We use ms-1 for unit of speed.
    But what is the physical unit for teleporting a mass to a distance L? Is it also [L]/[time]?
    But it seems it does not take time for teleport.

    I am seeking help. Thanks very much.

    Yes, for teleportation v=0,1!(which is infinity) so the equation would be s/0,1! which is 0,1! . If you are confused by the 0,1! , note that the facuilty of 0,1 is infinty so I chose it to represent infinity becuase I don't have the infinity sign on my desktop.Yet thinking about it in detail, teleportation is nothing but scanning a bodys molekular and nuclear structure, destroying the body and building it up again at a different device or point. s=L

    So it doesn't matter what L is even if it is infinity it still is irelavent becuase infinity/infinity=infinity

    Thank You for your help.
    But I still concern about what the "physical unit" is for this, whether it is accessible or not.

    Is this 'Physics'?
    I wonder.

    Do you mean something like miles or kilometers or meters or centimeters per second mintue or hour?

    If we accept that "teleportation" is described as scanning an object here and reconstructing it there then two relevant metrics would be bandwidth and latency; bits per second and seconds.

    EDIT: this thread will remain closed. If you wish to ask about the velocity of a particle undergoing quantum tunneling, then you may open a new thread in the QM forum. But in classical physics there is no such thing as teleportation.
