Re: A to Z Questionnaire - I

All correct, other than F : Femtometer. Femto is 10^-15, but the question said that the unit was named after an Italian scientist. The answer is 'Fermi'.

OUTSTANDING cool

Re: A to Z Questionnaire - I

Well done, MathsIsFun, mathsyperson, Ricky and Patrick. All are right, T thought the answer to O was Otto Hann. However, Oppenheimer seems the right answer. Thank God, touched both names start with O!  Excellent team effort! up
