by the way , I think you meant to say |dw:1364614621701:dw|
it is an equation provided from the fractal study of energy consumption efficiency by mass
because unit for mass and energy doesn't match up hence they can equal each other
http://eeb37.biosci.arizona.edu/~brian/West_Brown_Enquist_1997.pdf http://research.unm.edu/quantum/quantum05/threequarterpower.html
so our M is not mass :X since mass is small m in physics
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kleiber's_law q0 ~ M¾.
Because Bigger animals need more energy to survive and smaller animals don't need as much because of their size.
no… M is still mass in that equation E is the energy consumption in calories? if we say that is the rate of metabolism (q) then what amount of energy required - how much calorie per gram? I think I stumbled on a very complicated living system processes :/ and may need a decade to get to fully understand
@Nubia9811 we know that bigger animals require more energy, but we are talking about the rate of efficiency. Meaning that big animals, like elephant, use energy more efficient than small ones like mouse. Let us say we need 10,000 mouse to be the same mass of an elephant, the sum of consumption of energy will be higher for the mouse compared to one elephant though they of the same mass.
plot of e=m^(3/4) http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=Plot%5Bx%5E%283%2F4%29%2C%7Bx%2C0%2C50%7D%5D
can you do that alongside where E=M?
yes, http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=Plot%5Bx%2Cx%5E%283%2F4%29%2C%7Bx%2C0%2C5000%7D%5D of course , we can see , it is much lower as mass increase
yes, we have to look for as mass get really big
now let us focus on the question: why?
that would be a deep question , wouldn't it?
