    Cool 100 millionths of a biliionth of a second

    "Each pulse lasted a mere 100 millionths of a billionth of a second."

    How long is "100 millionths of a biliionth of a second"?

    many thanks.

    A millionth of a billionth of a second times a hundred. (A billionth of a second is a nanosecond.) It's a very very very short span of time.

    It's 0.00000000000001 of a second (I think).
