An ant has been scaled up to be the same length as a human (2m).

Explain using the properties of proportionality why this would be completely unreasonable in reality.

Ants are insects and insects have exoskeletons. Exosceletons cannot support internal organs of this size, that is why land animals with exoskeletons cannot be big. 

Sounds more like a biology question than a maths question.


Maybe the asker was looking for something different ?....
