Description: A “Fermi Question” is a science related question that seeks a fast,
rough estimate of a quantity, which is either difficulty or impossible to measure
directly. For example, the question “How many drops of water are there in Lake
Erie from its approximate dimensions and conversion of units to yield an answer.
The answers should be an estimate within an order of magnitude recorded in
power(s) of ten. (Event Resources)
