Transcript of The hidden Golden Ratio

The Hidden Golden Ratio The golden ratio or Phi is a rectangular angle that is said to be more visually attractive. It is when the length is divided by the width and it equals 1.618. It can continually create more triangles within itself to create more rectangles which include the golden ratio. Another characteristic or the golden ratio is that it can fit the spiral in itself. (refer to image) What is the golden Ratio? Half of the base, the slant height, and the height from the vertex to the center create a right triangle. When that half of the base equal to one, the slant height would equal to the value of Phi and the height would equal to the square root of Phi.
An easier way to find the Golden ratio in the Great Pyramid though is to simply half the base then divide it by the pyramids slanting height. The Great Pyramid of Giza
and The Golden Ratio The Golden Ratio By Max 7W An insight into The: 1.6=chocolate block The Chocolate block Many companies and businesses apply the golden ratio into their products to make them more attractive, one of these being Cadbury chocolate blocks. After taking measurements of a block of chocolate it was easily seen that it closely followed the Golden ratio Why blame the chocolate? The measurements showed the block of chocolates dimensions were roughly 3.8 by 6.2. dividing them equaled the rounded of number of 1.6. The formula would be:
=1.6315 The answer is no. The reason is because There are many more hidden Phi around the globe hidden any where from buildings, to the food you eat, to nature, to faces that you see and maybe even the music you hear. All these factors can be hiding the Golden ratio Is that all there is to the golden ratio? But you are going to have to find them yourself The golden ratio equation:
P=SH/ (B/2)
P=356/ (440/2)
P=1.61818181818... Actual Phi =1.618 033988... Bibliography:

Did the Egyptians ever Realize? taking into account how old the Egyptian race is it seems highly unlikely that they knew that they were building it to the scale of 1.618181818 but it is seen that either it was a tremendous coincidence or the Egyptians knew what they were doing to an extent. It is most likely that the Egyptians simply drew a diagram of sorts and found that it looked perfect before using their mathematical abilities to work out how to achieve this masterpiece It seems almost logical to say that the Egyptians actually knew what they were doing when the build the mighty great pyramid of geeza So that's the Prezi So that's the Prezi
