Golden Ratio in Relation to The Great Pyramid Mitchell Olarenshaw 7G The Golden Ratio, Divine Proportion, The Golden mean or the Golden Section is a rectangle appealing to the human eye more than any other rectangle. The Golden Ratio is a measurement of 1.61803398875. A Rectangle that's divided its length by width and comes out as around about 1.6 is known as the Golden Ratio, and is known as a perfect rectangle. The Golden Ratio is used all over the world, TVs,Cereal boxes, and in nature. Companies use it in their products to be more appealing to the human eye. Here is en example of the golden ratio in this rectangle. This rectangle is considered to have perfect proportion and is more appealing to the human eye than any other rectangle. I if you divide its length by its width it will come out with answer of about 1.6 The Great Pyramid is a very precise place and was built perfectly for king Khufu. It was built as a place where king Khufu was mummified, he wanted to be mummified in a place of greatness. the great pyramid of Giza defiantly represents greatness and perfection. It is so perfect because the measurements of the faces are only centimeters apart, and degrees of the pyramid are only a few off. The Great Pyramid of Giza is also known to be apart of a spiral, a golden spiral including two other pyramids and the sphinx. Some say it was apart of a primitive calendar of some sort. The Great Pyramid is located in Giza. The Great Pyramid Where is the Golden Ratio in relation to the Great Pyramid?? The golden ratio is found in the Great Pyramid when you apply the rule the Egyptians found: Sloping height divided by (1/2 base length) this got them the Golden Ratio measurement. some say, this was no accident. The Egyptians worked the base length to be 378ft. The sloping height has not yet been discovered, it is still an argument, they did discover the angle to be about 51 degrees from the top. Pythagorean Theorem This is the Pythagorean
theorem equation:
a2+b2=c2 - C being the
longest side of the triangle. The only way to find the sloping height of a triangle is to use the Pythagorean
theorem, the Egyptians used it to measure, design and plan using this strategy, by using a simple piece of knotted ropes to make right angles.
They made land boundaries using the Pythagorean Theorem, which made them the Great Pyramid of Giza. Where Has The Golden Ratio Been Found In The World? The Golden Ratio in Art.
The most famous painting ever has the Golden Ratio in it, no surprise. The Mona Lisa and The Golden Ratio The Mona Lisa, painted by Leonardo Da Vinci, is the most perfect, most special piece of art work, not only because of Leo's ability to paint, but the perfect proportional face which he has drawn on purpose. The Mathematician was the first person to use it art. If you divided the rectangles length by width around her face, the answer comes out to be 1.618. This is simply spot on, and more beautiful to the human eye, I bet you wondered why she looks so beautiful...... What Is The Golden Ratio? An Example Of The Golden Ratio Rectangle
