As you know, a cube with each side 4 m in length has a volume of 64 m3. Each side of the
cube is now doubled in length. What is the ratio of the new volume to the old volume? Why
is this ratio not simply 2? Include a sketch with dimensions.

  • Physics -

    Because since the length is doubled, it is now 8m, if you cube that to get the volume, it'll be a ratio of 8
