How To: Determine math proportions with the Square-Cube Law

Determine math proportions with the Square-Cube Law

Ever watch a cheesy movie and say "That monster is so FAKE!" but not really understand why? Well monstrous monsters are governed by a little biological rule called the Square-Cube Law, a scientific term combining math, anatomy and physics into one educational tool to recognize theatrical baloney when you see it. Just watch this video to see the explanation of the Cube-Square Rule, how it works and its ramifications for our favorite B-Movie pet monsters.

The Cube-Square Law states the volume of a structure increases with the cube of its linear dimensions whereas its surface area increases with the square of its linear dimension. Not only is the Square Cube Law helpful with movie monsters, it's helpful with mathematical proportions, engineering, biomechanics, astronomy and other science categories filled with math.
