Film Theory: Ant Man's GIANT Problem (Marvel's Ant-Man)

    Shouldn’t he explode when he sizes up? His surface area aka skins shouldn’t be able to contain all the mass as state in kurzgesagt-everything in a nutshell’s the size of life videos.

    I assumed this video would be about how in his enlarged form he should only be as strong as when he's normal size. If I'm remembering correctly the way he shrinks is by moving his atoms or molecules closer together, which is why he's still strong in ant form. So if you do the opposite and move them apart to increase his size then he should be weak and fragile for his size. I'm no rock scientist....I'm just spitballing here

    I’m new at this... Wouldn’t “Equivalent exchange” or Atomic Expansion (The space between Atoms) play a role here? But... ehh probably overthinking this.

    I think the reason of why he is moving slower. Is because it takes longer for the brains singnals to reach a specific part of the body as a result the increaced distance the signals meed to travel

    Pym particles increase the distance between the users atoms, so wouldn't he be the same weight?

  12. Cutter Babcock

    I'm curious! What about the pin particles? In another video about ant man you said that the bigger the object grows the farther apart the particles get, making them less dense. Its why when he shrinks he has the ability to create a black hole, the particles become so close and so dense they form a black hole. with this in mind, wouldn't it make him so light that he would actually fly away? like you claimed with Thomas the train in a previous video about Ant-man? Just asking, and you may be ignoring that on purpose for the sake of this video. Love your videos btw.

    The "walking thingies" line actually makes the friendship between Peter P and Ned much better because it means Peter isn't actually a big fan of Star Wars but by evidence of the Lego death star he still tries to like it because Ned likes it.

    But wouldn't ant man just die if he shrunk because of how the body is designed. I remember a teacher told us we couldn't shrink ourselves because our bodies wouldn't be able to get enough and properly use oxygen. And not only that wouldn't he be unable to control body temperature correctly either, suffering from hypothermia or hyperthermia? No? Just me?

    I recall a statement, in the first Ant-Man movie. Paraphrasing: "When you shrink, you retain your mass/weight. So he is like a 200lb bullet." (Or something along those lines. ) That being said, wouldn't the opposite happen? If he had grown to 65 ft, he would still retain the same mass/weight as a 200 lb person? In that case, he would just become a large parade balloon.

    Hey Mat, could you put links to sites/names of books where you found the information from physics and other fields of study in the description? At my school we have to do a lot of presentations and sometimes they let us chose our topics as long as we explain how something (like square cube law) works & I wanted to do something inspired by your & Austin's videos (namely why they're not building 10m tall robots), but the teachers want the source material for pretty much everything, so I couldn't just be "a guy from the internet said that this law works like this" and they refuse to take wikipedia as a source (lol). Like you said some numbers are a pain to find and having some sources that you used would help greatly when looking for insignificant details ;)

    The made-up science of the Ant-Man movies is really shitty tho. Like so full of holes even a normie can spot them easily. tbh MatPat does a better job of explaining the technicality and functionality of the Ant-Man suit than the MCU did. He should get a job with them or something

    Uh, sorry to burst your bubble MatPat, but you've just gone back on EVERYTHING you said in your last antman video. In Ant man video #1 you said his mass DOESNT increase, and now in Ant man video#2 you are saying it does. But heyy, thats just a theory

  77. Marcos Beni

    Marcos BeniMonth ago

    The movie is completely inconsistent with its own science. According to the movie's own explanation, ant-man changes size by changing the space between his atoms, which means that no matter the size, ant-man should always have the same mass. Yet, he stands on people's shoulders and gun barrels when small without them noticing, and doesn't float away like a balloon due to his lower density when big. Analyzing this movie's "science" is a waste of time.

    A non-mathematical explanation: he's not going to grow more fast-twitch muscle fibers, the space between his atoms is just going to get greater. Can you imagine the metabolism required to grow 3x bigger and have all the cells reproduce to fill the required space?

    wait didn't you prove last time, weight doesn't change, just like the distance between particles, so like even it big form, little form he ways the same, thats why you had stated things would float around if they where huge, they suddenly become like 70% air, and like a thomas the train weigh nothing, same with antman going small, he still ways the same, walking on the guys gun or standing on his shoulder would flat out screw everything

    Actually ant man when he is bigger his mass is the same because as it is explained on the movie he is getting smaller because the spase between his atoms is getting smaller so when he is getting bigger the spase between his atoms is getting bigger so he got the same mass the real problem is that he doesn't have the same density so sinse he got 147 times bigger his density will be less than the air so he will start going upwards

    Mat Pat, you're forgetting something Huge. I know this from 8th grade science. the whole premise of the movie, is that Ant man changes size by moving the matter within his very atoms closer together. the Professor dude even says it in the first movie, although he changes size he retains the same amount of mass. the same thing should apply in revers, the matter of his body should become so spaced out when he gets bigger, that he becomes really flimsy and easily breakable. It's the same amount of mass! just more spaced out. its the reason why he shouldn't be able to goe subatomic, cause his mass would be either so packed together he'd turn into a neutron star or something (havent actually done the science for this), or he just would still be too big.
