    Hey matpat, ive watched Moana a lot now and love it, but ive noticed something weird. The scene with Maui singing "Youre welcome" to moana always felt odd. Moana was totally solid on her stance at first, and then Maui 'charmed' her into dancing and just letting him take the boat. He repeats the phrase youre welcome a lot too, not just in the main chorus. Maybe hes hypnotizing her. And if so, does he do it anywhere else in the movie? Or maybe theres lore of him having that power? Just a thought! :)

    Please read up on Frank Starling law, a theory for actual human muscles, rather than some random mathematical law that doesn't apply here.

    I'm pretty sure there is some in-universe science that explains this. We know that Hank Pym had perfected the art of shrinking down as early as the 60s, and we know that it took years of working with Bill Foster after that to perfect growing, so if I took so much longer then they must have spent that time working the kinks out

    Pym particles only extends and shortens the distance between atoms. So Scott still has the same mass. Where did he get the extra strength in Civil War?

    Actually, Antman is not that consistant when it comes to changing size. Play by the rule where Antman doesn't change the mass, he would be so light that he should actually float. Play by the rule that he increase his mass, he would have the square cube problem...... But here is the thing, I think the movie actually play it right, no matter which rule you are playing by, by saying Scott cannot breath! The surface area of the lung is not going to be enough for Scott when he cannot increase the surface area in proportion to the mass he gain. And he suffocate in the movie when he is in Giant Form. If you think about it more closely, becoming bigger without changing the structure also means he is going to inhale more dirt in the same amount of time. Thus unless there is a way to clean up the lung, any people with the right mind shouldn't even attempt this.

  24. EricG326

    EricG3264 days ago

    But didn’t they say in the Ant Man movie that the person’s mass always stays the same? I think the reason why he would be moving so slow is because his limbs are scarcely dense enough to fight off the drag of the air around him.

    Wouldn't antman overheat and die since active cells generate heat, and his body is designed to give off heat for his current size? If he gets really big, his much larger volume wouldn't beable to give off enough heat through his much smaller surface area, to stop him from overheating. Elephants have large flappy ears to give themselves more surface area to give off the heat of their much larger volume. So if you make an elephant small, thier volume will give all the heat away over thier much larger surface area, and they'd freeze.

  51. Dylzhaar

    Dylzhaar12 days ago

    Wait wait wait wait wait. When he shrinks he doesn’t get lighter because he doesn’t lose any atoms, they just bunch closer together. So why would he get heavier when he gets bigger? (Also he really shouldn’t be able to get bigger because the atoms wouldn’t hold each other together anymore...)

    I just be debunked your entire first theory about ant man. In order to sustain a black hole you would need the entire mass of the MOON!! Not just that but you said this in another video BEFORE UR FIRST ANTMAN ONE!! It was a Pokemon theory about guaurdivar (sorry if I butchered the name) and you said the hadrion collider would make microscopic black holes and everyone thought it would kill us all. But it doesn't and makes an entire black hole for microscopes to look at and get real INFO ABOUT THEM!!! The black hole would only appear for not even 1/10000 of a second because they r colliding PROTONS together!! p.s get rekt mat

    Actually now analyzing it, its the same thing with balloons. The lees air they have, the stronger and harder it is to actually pop them. And also smaller baloons are more aerodynamic, therefore making them move a lot quicker when thrown. But baloons that are larger, and more filled with air are much eiser to pop sense its mass has been expanded, and its material has been streched ro the point where it becomes easy break. Also sense it contains more air and a wider surface, it is not as aerodynamic sense more forces go against it, making it move slower. So it makes sense that ant man in his enlargened size wont be as efficient as his smaller or normal size sense he has to use more energy, force, and strength in order to do things that would be in an easy manner in his smaller or normal form.

    Wait, so if he was bigger but the number of his atoms stay the same, wouldn't he be really light or have holes because there is a limited amount of atoms, like if there are say.....100,000 atoms in Scott, then grows 10x his hight, then he would have holes in his body because he need more atoms in his body, but he only has 100,000 atoms in his body. There are too little atoms in his body too fill in empty spaces, thus causing holes....DAMMIT MATPAT IM TOO SMART NOW! thankyousomuchimnotmadatyouatallyourvidiosareawesomeantihavesunscribedandturnedinnotifacationsyouareawesomeokbye.

    This is in contrast to your other theory. U said in another vid if ant man shrinks or inlarges his density changes but mass doesnt. Now u say that mass is dependent on strength but does it even change to affect strength

    I always love all your videos! I just re-watch this video and I just think that you can't measure human volume with 1x1x1. I think human have different volume:surface with a cube. And I believe that they have different factors when you increase the size. I don't have a sciences background, so please tell me if I'am wrong, but tell me the new result if I am right, so I can sleep at night
