how many tampons would it take to absorb the whole ocean
okay i figured it out
there are about 1,260,000,000,000,000,000,000 liters of water on earth, and 98% of that water is found in the oceans. so 98% of that would be 1,234,800,000,000,000,000,000 liters. if the average tampon can hold 10 cm^3 of water, then it would take 1.2348 × 10^23 tampons.
1.2348 × 10^23 = 123,480,000,000,000,000,000,000
we need 123,480,000,000,000,000,000,000 tampons.
