Talk:2009: Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram
- A daily food consumption of average human is about 100W when spread out over 24 hours
While wattage is used as an informal proxy for bulb brightness, there is not a 1-to-1 relationship between power consumption and light output. Incandescent bulbs in the United States were commonly labeled with both watts consumed and lumens output to aid consumers in choosing efficient bulbs.
I understand the explanation, but what's the joke?
The title text says "The Hertzsprung-Russell diagram is located in its own lower right corner, unless you're viewing it on an unusually big screen." But it's clearly on the top left corner... Am I missing something? 220.127.116.11 18:47, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
- Why would it be at the top left...? The diagram itself is not particularly luminous, so would not be at the top, and its apparent temperature is quite low, so it would not be on the left.
