Make a Fermi estimate of the number of bricks that would fit into a refrigerator.

Use reasonable values for a standard-sized brick and a typical refrigerator.

figure a brick is 8x4x2 inches

 

3x6x3 = 54 bricks is 2 cubic feet

 

a fridge is about 6 foot high, 3 foot wide,  2 foot deep or 36 cubic feet.

 

36/2 = 12 x 54 = 648 bricks
