    We all know that the COOLEST moment in the new Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer is when we see Ant-Man grow into a GIANT man. Now, I've explored Ant-Man's powers before, but never what it means to grow up to 65 feet tall! What does that do to your body? Well, Loyal Theorist, you are about to find out!

    Dude measuring Antman's volume by cubing his height is wrong.
    Seriously, he is not a cube. Better to use a graduated cylinder😂😂😂

    But actually Pym particals doesn't add mass it only changes the distance between atoms so he's not actually getting heavier if anything he is going to float when he gets bigger

    i had a stroke when he said a tesseract has 6 faces.
    if youre going to be sciencey you should know that a tesseract also known as a hypercube is a 4 dimensional version of the measure polytope
    it is made of 8 cubes. therefore has 48 faces.
    i get it he was referencing the tesseract from the marvel universe. even so marvel dropped the ball.

    He won't weigh the same as 15 elephants because of him using Pym particles, instead he will weigh the same as he does at normal size.

  • lily lex
    lily lex 11 days ago

    So i am rewatching Civil War and i thought about the explanation for ant man shrinking and when ant man turns giant does that mean he is increaing the space between the atoms because i dont think there is anyother explanation. Its just a question but it would be very risky if you did increase the space between a atom maybe death??

  • Niikeia
    Niikeia 21 day ago

    But.. During the last episode about Antman you actually stated that compressing his atoms would make him smaller but keep him at the same weight. AND you said that this also applies to the Ant and the Lokomotive, which were turned into something gigantic. They were increased in size but left at their weight.
    So if that applies to the Ant, the Train and Scott Lang a.k.a. Antman, why would he how square his size and cube his mass if you not long ago showed that pulling the particles apart would leave him at 90 kg, which he is assumed to have in any size? Did I miss anything?

    Matpat you are complitely wrong in this on. In the first mouvie it is said that The Pim partical change to distance between atome and so Scott’s weight will not change.
    Yes been small will give him a hight density that where his streathe is coming from. So the opposite that we don’t see in the film is that all the thing throw at him will cut him down because withe the pim partical been big mean having a low density

    Oddly enough, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #14 (which also has Ant Man cameo) featured the Square Cube law, which Squirrel Girl takes advantage of, tricking her super villain du jour, Enigmo to become kaiju sized, but since he didn't have access to Pym particles, his ankles exploded under that kind of weight

  • Siobhana Crasto Craig

    Yes, it's true that in the movie they SAID mass doesn't change... but every scene save a few scenes contradicts that.
    When he's small, he should still be 171lbs (or more, because of the suit) and yet he can climb on an ant and the ant can easily still fly, AND he climbs on his friend's shoulder and he doesn't even feel it.
    Plus in the new movie... they take full sized vans and store them in a tiny container (which should be thousands of pounds, and yet normal people can hold it), and he literally shrunk a BUILDING down and was able to lift it.
    So basically, that was said in the movie... but it obviously doesn't actually apply for the majority of the movie (except for the beginning, when landing on that bathroom tile and car roof somehow cause them both to bend or break)

    I thought Ant-Man's density would go down as he grew. If he were to have the same mass at a size 100 times bigger, wouldn't he have 1/100 the density, rendering him weak and frail?

  • Shirokuma
    Shirokuma Month ago

    Okay so, I'm confused.
    At 6:49 there's talk about Ant-man's increasing size causes an increase in mass, but in the first video explaining the density of shrunken objects, as well as blown up objects, like the actual ant and Thomas the tank engine, he explained that they would be like balloons, just floating around, because of how the pym particles spread apart the atoms with the increased size. So, wouldn't the same logic follow through with Ant-man's increase in size? And also, because he becomes lighter, assuming that is how it works, wouldn't that actually weaken him in his ability to fight?
    Can someone @Matpat for me? I want answers!! Bring me the Spiderman!!

    Mass doesn't change. Density does. Big Ant-Man is essentially a balloon, which is precisely why he can't move very quickly.
