True

True or false: It is natural to define the speed of light as an integer when doing calculations with Julia.

True

True or false: Raising the speed of light to the power of 3 in Julia results in an integer overflow.

True

True or false: Redefining the speed of light as a float in Julia fixes the issue of integer overflow when calculating the Planck’s length.

True

True or false: It is easy for an average student of Physics to understand the issues related to defining the speed of light in Julia.
