You have made a bet with a friend. You tell them that you can eat one mole of M&Ms in a year, if you eat one M&M every second for three hours a day, 7 days a week, for 365 days in that year. Can you win the bet? Calculate how many years it would really take to eat one mole of M&Ms.
= 6.02E23things* 1/(onething/sec)
= 6.02E23 sec*1year/365days)*1day/3hrs*1hr/3600sec
= 6.02E23*1/365*1/3*1/3600 years
