Model Calculations
Water Molecule Model
Calculations
Size of real atoms
Hydrogen atom = 0.1 nm
Oxygen atom = 0.152 nm

Original size of Styrofoam balls


Hydrogen circumference = 8cm (80,000,000nm)
Oxygen Circumference = 12.2 cm
(122,000,000nm)

Calculations
.152/x = .1
Check:
(.1)(x) = .152
X = 1.52

(8)(1.52) = 12.16
The circumference of the oxygen model needs to
be 12.6cm

Conclusion
The oxygen model needs to be cut down by 3% in
order to scale correctly to the hydrogen model.

Ratio
121,600,000/.152 = 800,000,000
Our model is eight hundred million times larger
than a real oxygen model

Ebola Calculations

Size of Ebola
970nm long
80nm diameter

Actual size of model


30,000,000 nm diameter (3cm)
220,000,000 nm length (22cm)

Ratio
220000000/970
Our model is 226804 times larger

Lithium Calculations

Neutrons and Protons: 5 centimeters


Electrons: .5 centimeters

Neutrons and Protons: 1 x 10^-15


Electrons: 5.635882 x 10^-15

5,500 nanometers = 5.5 micrometers

Ratio
40/.60 (nanometers)
Our model is 66.67 times bigger than the actual
size

Ribosome Calculations

Ribosome: 13 centimeters
Protein: 13 centimeters

Ribosome: 25 nanometers

25 nanometers = 13 centimeters

Ratio
13/2.5 (centimeters)
Our model is 5.2 times bigger than the actual size
Amoeba Calculations

Size of real Amoeba


5,000 nm or 5 microns

Size of model
27cm length (270,000,000)
15 cm wide (15,000,000)

Ratio
270,000,000/5,000
Our model is only 54000 times bigger than the real
thing
