The square-cube law says that as volume goes up, surface area goes up more slowly. My current application of this principle is devoted to hair.
This cat, which is one half of the current feline-american population of my residence, has grown in mass by approximately 2.2 times. Similarly, the other feline-american in the house has grown in mass by approximately 2.3 times.
Utilizing the square-cube law, I should be getting approximately 1.7 times as much hair as a cat that has grown in mass by 2.2 times1, however I seem to have about 80 times as much hair as a month ago.
Either my cats are shedding like freaking mad or we have a new postulate to include in the sqaure-cube law. Someone call Galileo and alert him.
