Problems Plus 5: Fractal Snowflake Curve

in MES Science7 months ago

▶️ Watch on 3Speak

In this video I go over calculating the area of an infinite snowflake curve constructed by adding a triangle to every side of the previous shape, and starting with an equilateral triangle of side length 1. Although the total length of the shapes approach infinity, the actual area approaches a finite number. When we determine the area of each consecutive shape, we obtain a convergent Geometric infinite series, which we can then plug in our earlier formula for the area. The area of the snowflake approaches exactly a 60% increase as compared with the original triangle area. Truly epic stuff!
