Hi guys, I'm a high school student at a private high school in the LA county called Bishop Amat Memorial. I'm currently in Honors Physics, so far I've been have a smooth and fine time until my teacher hit us with a project concerning scaling... His philsophy of teaching for this project is, "Find out how to do it, and teach yourselves." I can understand why and what he's trying to get at by saying that, but it's been really tough on me. Well to the point, if someone can at least HINT me or really help me out on this question, I think i'll be fine for the rest of the whole entire project, This is the question that stumps me, even after doing about 2 solid hours of hopeless and tiresome research on the net... The rest of the project conerns the movie Godzilla, but I won't get into that. I have an idea what a unit cross sectional area is, it is the samething as if a plane would go through a cyclinder is it not? If I have the wrong idea, please correct me. If possible, please explain "the weight per unit cross sectional area" to clarify my confusion. Please help me, a confused and tiresome student.
