# GOOGOL Number

Googol is one of the largest numbers in the universe…
It’s value is 10^100… It seems like it is there but it’s a bigger number than we can imagine… If you want to know its size, just remember one thing… Even if you count all the particles in the Observable Universe, its number is about 10^ There are only 78 to 10^82.. A Googol is much more than that…

Mathematician Daniel DeBruyn built an interesting Gear reduction Machine when his age was 1 billion seconds (31.71 years).. It is considered as the largest Gear Reducer in the world… Using this machine it is possible to theoretically explain the number Googol…
It is a mechanism with 100 gears… the first gear rotates ten times and the second gear completes one rotation.. the second gear rotates ten times and the third gear completes one rotation. The first gear will have rotated 1 Googol (10^100) times…

Although the thing is simple, this is not a practical machine.. because even if the first gear rotates once a second, we can only see the rotation of 10 or 15 gears in our lifetime.. Similarly, even if we increase the speed of rotation with a motor, the mechanism will be damaged long before reaching Googol… And even if you think that the last gear can be rotated first, the same situation will happen.. (No force in the universe can generate that much power… Machine will break down and go to pieces)

Anyway, By Theory..This Gear Reducer of De Bruyne is very useful as a machine that can understand exactly what Googol is..
