planck length

Postby batmanmg » Tue Aug 29, 2006 10:27 pm

what is plank length... i know its 1.6x10^-35 but what does it mean....

is it the shortest measurable length. or is it the shortest existable length?

can something be shortert than planck length? or can you just not measure something shorter than planck length?

and if nothing can be shorter than planck length, then does that mean that the distance between two points can't be shorter than planck length?

i know what the length is... but what does it mean to the rest of the physical world... surely its not simply applied to black wholes. or is it?
