Description:

This site illustrates the magnitude of large numbers by showing and describing arrangements of large quantities of U.S. pennies. It begins with16 pennies that measure one inch when stacked and one foot when placed in a row. The next visual shows a thousand pennies, and in progressive steps the site builds to a quintillion pennies. All pages have tables at the bottom listing the value of the pennies on the page, size of the pile, weight, and area (if laid flat).
