Find the value for k in the equation w kh3 for a baby who is 20 inches long and weighs 6 pounds?
Is it significantly fatter in proportin to its height than an adult?

  • Math -

    With the limited information you give, we have to make some unsure assumptions.

    w = weight in pounds
    h = height in inches

    w = k * h^3 (h cubed)

    Dividing both sides by h^3, gives you

    k = w/(h^3)

    Insert you numerical values. However, you need to know the adult values to make a comparison.

    I hope this helps. If not, repost your question in clearer terms and with adequate data. Thanks for asking.
