If you filled the universe with grains of sand, and wrote each zero on a single grain of sand, writing a googolplex would still take more grains of sand than would exist in the observable universe!
...
If you were writing in baseA279; googol.

There are only 10^80 protons in the universe, so I am pretty sure that there isn't 10^Googol grains of sand (seeing as grains of sand are a lot bigger than a proton).

Apparently there would be 10^90 grains of sand. But remember, we're using base googol.

I don't know. A lot lot less than there would be if you filled the universe full of it, though.

Well. There are about 78 000 000 000 000 000 000 atoms in a grain of sand. But here's the thing, there isn't enough space to write down a googolplex in the observable universe even if you wrote every single digit on every atom and molecule within the observable universe.

We're only writing on the grains, not the atoms, but I understand your point. 10^80 atoms in the universe, 10^100 zeros in googolplex.

What I'm doing here though, is filling the observable universe with sand, and writing on each grain a zero. The major difference is, I'm using base *googol*.

Graham's Number is still larger than a googolplex, though. :)

Lol, I know. I'm not going for the largest numbers. Just trying to put forward a theorem which seems illogical but I believe to be true.

Universe diameter = 93 billion light-years.

1 light year =
9.4605284 E+15 meters

Universe radius = 4.39914571E+26 meters
volume of sphere = (4/3)pi r^3
volume of universe = 3.56610109E+80 meters^3

particle of medium sand = .63 mm diameter.
Volume of sand particle = .1309243 mm^3
=1.3e - 10 meters^3

3.566E+80 / 1.3E-10 =

2.72378855E+90 grains of mediums sand could fit in the visible universe with no space between the grains.

<1E+100

Yep a googol is a heck of alot.

No.

A googol is 10^10^100. Eliminate the first 10^--which you would do if you were writing in base googol, and you would be left with 10,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000,"000.

Oh, look. I just copy-pasted it from Wikipedia.

Yes, I have. A googolplex is 10^10^100. To quote Wikipedia: A googolplex is the number 10^googol, i.e. 10^10^100. [I meant to type googolplex.]

The power doesn't denote the number written in the base, but the place-holders. For example; 10^5 =/= 5, 10^5 = 10,000. 10^10 =/= 10, 10^10 = 10,000,000,000. So 10^10^100 doesn't equal 10^100 in base 10, it means that the number has googol zeroes. Nor does it say anything about what size the number is in base googol.
