2. There are 10mm in one centimeter.
I think its around 10,000 termites.
A half an inch is equivalent to 1.27 centimeters. Then, divide 50 by 1.27 to get 39.3700787402. 39 termites can fit in 50 centimeters.
In order to calculate that, we have to know the length of each termite, and which way they're facing. Everyone else who has posted that same question here has remembered to include that information. When cheating on homework, it's important to copy the question accurately and completely.
there are different species of termites, however the most numerous are about 5.5mm long. So two termites would be 11mm long, or 1mm over the length quoted in your question
600 termites, assuming termites line up only one side of the stick.
