We will be learning about body size and scaling in this experiment by examining the relationship between foot area and body size. We will test two hypothesis using the foot size and height of the class as the variables. The first is that foot area will scale isometrically with mass. The second is that foot area will scale allometrically with mass in order to maintain a constant foot load.
