During the "Phsysics" Lecture, the student incorrectly writes Avogadro's number on the chalkboard as 6.0021415 x 10^23 atoms/mol. When Shawn performs his "reading" on the student, the number is shown correctly written as 6.0221415 x 10^23. When he turns and speaks to the class, it goes back to being incorrectly written. And when Shawn sends the student to the principal's office, it is written correctly. See more
