In Reply to: is there a probability of finding 2 identcal snow flakes posted by Timo Betz on June 04, 2001 at 10:56:04:
I am not a mathematician but I think the probability would change depending on elevation, atmospheric conditions and other factors. I think the probability is high of finding two flakes with same structure (at higher elevations) but the detailed inards are effected by air pockets and "dust" particles and I think the probability of finding two identical flakes is astronomical. I would be curious to see some figures from any mathematicians out there!
