Planks length to planks volume?

  1. May 13, 2004 #1
    because nothing can be one dimensional, (a line) planks length does not cut it so why hasnt anyone thought of planks volume

    planks length (length) x planks length (width) x planks length (depth) = planks volume

    now a particle could never be smaller thanks planks volume

    whats your opinon?

    Would string theorists agree with that claim? Don't they say that a string is a one-dimensional object?

    Actually the real object is Planck *area* because Newton constant produces an object with dimensions of area. It has been customary to take the square root of this object and present it in a more intuitive form as a length. For the same token, you could exponentiate it into a Planck volume.
