It takes around 2 billion electrons to produce a single email. That’s definitely a lot of electrons to be playing around with.
The Internet has become an essential part of our lifestyle. From shopping to managing projects, from finding information to connecting with people via social media, we are dependent on the internet in one or the other way. Around 4 billion people use the internet either for their personal use or business work. Emails are an important part of any business. People use the internet to send about 204 million emails every minute and out of which 70% are spams. If we look at the science behind this, then to produce a single email one requires 2 billion electrons.
The scientific fact stating the number of electrons used per email specifies the amount of power required to just create a single email. And if someday the internet goes down, approximately 200 billion emails and 3 billion Google searches have to wait. If we look at the number of emails sent per day, the number is now nearing to 300 billion. So, one can imagine that around 600 billion electrons are required daily to produce a big amount of emails.
The tremendous growth in email marketing has resulted in producing such a huge amount of emails daily. Every business concern markets its product via email. The energy drawn by the internet to keep it running is of 50 million horsepower. This vast dovetailing web of content is pulsating via 75 to 100 million servers astounded all over the world. Yet the total weight is still debatable by many, the internet is the main source of connecting the world.
Thought emails are the cheapest, fastest and long-established way of communication today, there has been a huge transformation from the olden times. The email spam rate has also increased as this method is also used by fraudulent parties to trap the users. Keeping other things aside, emails are indeed the best way of personally communicating your ideas to the interested parties and thus you have to play around with the millions of electrons.
These emails contribute to a large amount of data available on the internet. As per the google, there are 1.2 million terabytes of data available on data.
