Hello everybody! :D

Not only that, google knows most of the fundamental constants of nature, try typing 'c' or 'G' or 'elementary charge' or 'proton mass' or 'hbar'. I do most of my homework using google since it keeps track of all of the unit conversions for me.

Now if only its E&M constants were in CGS units...

we need a website to do our homework :evil:
I had a professor who was saying "you should memorize physics constants as many as you can." he was right.
