  • 05:20 am, let me quickly watch that one nerdy video I still wanted to watch for like two weeks now. 05:29 am, I am never watching a CGP Grey video alone in bed anymore. 05:30 am, let's e-mail my shrink to put this on the list of topics. *Note to Grey: love your stuff man, but could you include a safeword at the beginning of these types of videos, like cucumber or Manhatten, much appreciated ✌️🤙

  • all measurements are in millimeter. Measurements are done with accurate values by using 1: root of 2 rather than using international slandered paper size. Thus these calculations are accurate for not being accurate and sorry if there is any mistake. a4/2^8 = 243.6452424284535 , surface area of bee approx = 245 a4/2^24 = 0.0037177313602974474 , surface area of cell body of neuron approx = 0.031415926 a4/2^32 = 1.4522388126161904 x 10^-5 , surface area of nucleus of neuron approx = 2.827433388 x 10^-5 a4/2^39 = 0.00040056364824753664 (width), wavelength of visible light ranges from 4 x 10^-4 to 7 x 10^-4 a4/2^56 = 1.1064112186431878 x 10^-6 (width), width of A-DNA = 2.3 x 10^ -6 a4/2^64 = 3.3812569748055898 x 10^-15, surface area area of hydrogen atom = 4.523893421 x 10 ^-14 a4/2^96 = 7.872602378031215 x 10^-25, surface area of hydrogen nucleus (calculated with the help of radius) = 2.42345785 x 10^-24 a4/2^116 = 7.507898691207137 x 10^ -31, quark dont have size but there are some experimental data but they vary. a4/2^228 = 1.4300029837075218 x 10^-32(length), plank length = 1.6 x 10^ -32
