Do we need to remember the Hubble constant? I can't find it in the formula booklet. Also can someone please explain how to convert it from its original form to SI units, I know it involves the conversion of parsecs but it;'d help thanks.

Don't worry about Helium because it's only one of quite a few marking points your allowed, and I don't understand it either.

Intensifier converts 1 X ray photon into many visible light photons (the X rays would otherwise mainly pass through the photographic film so this reduces the dose)
Or in a gamma camera, scintillator converts one gamma photon into many visible photons
Thank you! And good night all! Get some sleep. You are all smarty pants, and have worked hard, and you're going to be fine!

No we don't. It's around 65 kms-1mpc-1 ...

So do 65 times ten to the 3/ 3.1 times ten to the 22

Nope. Either they'll give it to you or you'll have to work it out as there is no definite value of of the Hubble constant. It's believed to be between and .

Impossible to get an accurate Hubble constant. You usually work it out or get it given to you. To convert it into SI units is self explanatory

In these formulas with the activity ones as well, when can and should I ignore the first bit e.g. I=I0 and just work out e to the power of the two things in this case ux, its in a lot of topics and I don't understand how you can do this.
Sometimes you will be given the fraction or percentage of the initial activity or initial no of nuclei or initial intensity etc. If for example the question was 'at a depth of 2cm, the intensity of ultrasound is 11% of the initial intensity, calculate the attenuation coefficient' they have given you I/Io in disguise - as here, I/Io = 11/100. You can then just manipulate the expression using logs to find mu.

Olber's paradox is that, if the universe was infinite and static, then every line of sight would end on a star meaning that if you looked at the night sky it would just be bright because everywhere you look you will end up looking at a star, but look out side bro that's not the case, which means that the universe is not infinite and not static/homogeneous

WTF don't do that, unless you have done like zero revision. I think sleep is more important
