    Scaling laws are an important aspect of biology. When you take a particular object (such as a human being), and make it twice as tall (while keeping the proportions the same) its weight will not increase 2-fold. It will actually increase 2 3-fold (8-fold)! A 6-foot person weighting pounds, if doubled in height, will therefore be 12 feet.

    Body size scaling relationships are relationships between a physiological quantity (such as the respiration rate, or the maximum reproduction rate) of organisms and their body size (frequently taken to be body weight).. Empirical descriptions of such relationships frequently use allometric functions (such as power laws), but all of the reasons why these fit the data are not understood. A house should be human scale, or perhaps intimate scale. The exception would be palaces, where homes also represent the power and wealth of the state. However, even in palaces it is often the case where the actual living quarters are scaled down to human size. Kings and princes are human, and have the same basic needs as the rest of us.

2 (June ): Polykleitos uses the distal phalanx of the little finger as the basic module for determining the proportions of the human body, scaling this length up repeatedly by √ 2 to obtain the ideal size of the other phalanges, the hand, forearm, and upper arm in turn.

Brain size variation. Maps of areal scaling relative to total brain size for the PNC, NIH, and HCP cohorts. The supramarginal gyrus is positively scaled and the temporal pole is negatively scaled in all three cohorts, but differences in scaling between the cohorts also exist.

IQ correlates with overall cortical surface area. Physics of the Human Body comprehensively addresses the physical and engineering aspects of human physiology by using and building on first-year college physics and mathematics. Topics include the mechanics of the static body and the body in motion, the materials properties of the body, muscles in the body, the energetics of body metabolism, fluid flow in the cardiovascular and respiratory.

For mammals weighing 7 g to kg, the scaling exponent for MMR is found to bewhich is identical to the scaling of mitochondrial volume in the musculature of these animals (Weibel and Hoppeler, p. ).Both databases included subjects with a minimum BMI (in kg/m 2) of and a maximum BMI of 35; the latter cutoff was due to MRI and DXA size limitations.

Subjects in all databases were aged > 18 y with no imposed maximum age. Body weight and height in all subjects were measured with a calibrated digital scale and stadiometer, respectively.
