Is there nothing Google can't do?

Not only does Google do arithmetic, but it also knows regular, inverse and hyperbolic trig functions. Better yet, it knows fundamental constants and can do conversions.

"speed of light in inches per fortnight" yields:
the speed of light = 1.42767306 × 10^16 inches per fortnight

"mass of earth times (speed of light)^2 in BTU"
mass of Earth times (the speed of light^2) = 5.0891554 × 10^38 BTU

I think Google could easily pass the first couple weeks of an introductory physics class.
