Re: General Quiz

JohnnyReinB,
Your answers are correct.
The third allotrope you were referring is probably C60, which I think is called Buckmisnterfullerene.
The speed of light in vacuum is 3x10^8 meters per second or 186,000 miles per second.
Kurre,
your answers are correct too.
Baryons are heavy sub-elementary particles and Leptons are the light ones.
Andreas Vesalius was the first to dissect human body.
The principle stating no two electrons can have the same set of Quantum numbers is Pauli's exclusion principle.
Very well done, both of you!!!
