Are there any connect between the golden radio( or any well know constant like the fibonacci number) and physics? I ask this question because there are a lot these occurence in math.

"the fibonacci number" ? Fibonacci numbers form an infinite sequence; there's no special constant among the infinite terms (? or is there??)kant said:( or any well know constant like the fibonacci number)
Nenad said:Im firly sure the golden ratio is seen in the structure of galacies and spiral galaxies in the universe.

there is another golden ratio called [tex]\pi[/tex] that occurs a lot in nature...

The Golden Ratio, also known as the divine proportion, is a mathematical ratio of approximately 1.618. In physics, it is observed in many natural phenomena and is believed to represent a fundamental principle of balance and harmony in the universe.
Yes, the Golden Ratio has been observed in various physical systems, such as the arrangement of leaves on a stem, the spiral shape of galaxies, and the structure of atoms. It is also believed to play a role in the formation of fractals and the geometry of space-time.
The Golden Ratio is closely linked to the Fibonacci sequence, a mathematical sequence in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. As the sequence progresses, the ratio between any two adjacent numbers approaches the Golden Ratio.
While the Golden Ratio is observed in many natural phenomena, it is not considered a universal constant in physics like the speed of light or the gravitational constant. Its presence in physical systems is believed to be a result of underlying mathematical principles rather than a fundamental physical law.
The Golden Ratio is often associated with beauty and harmony in art and design. In physics, it is believed to play a role in the aesthetics of physical systems, such as the shape of crystals and the patterns of sound waves. Some scientists also believe that the Golden Ratio may influence the perception of beauty in the human brain.
