Question: assume you could write small letters on a surface by...

Question details

Assume you could write small letters on a surface by placing atoms next to each other in the shape of that letter. How large of an area (in square meters) would you need to fit all of the words of every book ever written by humans? Make your own calculation, and state all your assumptions. Now imagine that instead of writing the letters on a thick piece of material, you are writing them on a sheet of graphene which is only 1 carbon atom thick. When each sheet is filled, you stack a new sheet on top. How large of a volume (in cubic meters) would you need to fit all of the words of every book ever written by humans?
