Have you ever had a question about something that is factual and you wish you had an expert to ask or have that expert do the calculations for you? Wolfram Alpha is what you need to get that done. Wolfram Alpha is an amazing tool that everyone should use when they have real questions to ask about many things that can be calculated.
Wolfram is more than just an ordinary search engine, such as Google or Bing. Wolfram carries out actual calculations based on the questions that you entered into the search form. Therefore, when someone asks you a question like "How fast can humans run?" If you entered that information into Google you would get about 24,000,000 results spread over hundreds, if not thousands of pages(not counting the ads). However, if you entered the same query into Wolfram you would get the actual results of 27 MPH by Usain Bolt in a no-nonsense display as outlined below.
How Does Wolfram Alpha Work?
Wolfram works by actually doing the calculations using built-in formulas and calculations created by experts in various fields.
Wolfram|Alpha's long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone.
Therefore, by just entering your query into the search form, Wolfram wants us to be able to compute anything calculable.
I really like the tool and I think that you should definitely bookmark this site, especially if you find yourself asking a lot of questions.
