Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You must calculate the Hausdorff dimension D. If R is the radius and N(R) is the number of volume elements you get \[ N(R) \sim \frac{1}{R^D} \] That lets you calculate D. But the question, whether it's a fractal can not be answered from this information alone, because a fractal has to display some kind of selfsimilarity and not only have a noninteger Hausdorff dimension!
