Table of Contents

Read here about the "heart" scalometer, a rendering of the powers of ten that forms an image of a cartoon "heart."

Overview

The "heart" scalometer is simply a rendering of the powers of ten: ten, one hundred, one thousand, and so on, in a circle. As with all scalometers, it implies that both the very large numbers and the very tiny ones differ in meaningful ways from the numbers near the center.
