That would depend on the precision of the instrument that you measure it with. Theoretically, the area of Norway is infinite.

Not so. Because of the fractal nature of a coastline the length of a coastline may be calculated to be infinite, but this infinity can not be extended to an area. The proof is simple.

Construct a rectangle 3,000 km long by 1,000 km wide. This will have an area of 3,000,000 km2. The whole of Norway will fit inside the rectangle, therefore the area of Norway is less than 3,000,000 km2 and is not infinite.

By joining pairs of points on the rectangle while taking care never to cross the coastline you can lower the upper bound to a great extent. By adding more and more lines that do not cross the coastline you can measure the upper bound to the area with as much precision as you like.

If you construct a geometrical area small enough to be contained inside the country, you can then run the process described above in reverse; this will give a lower bound to the area. As you draw more and more lines the upper and lower bounds to the area get closer and closer together.

Once the uncertainty is measured in a few mal spread over all of Norway, the question of attainable precision becomes an exercise in nit-picking.

It is the surface area of the two ends plus the surface area of the curved surface. Surface area of each end is pir2 Surface area of the curved surface is 2pirh Total surface area = 2pir2 + 2pirh

To obtain the ratio of surface area to volume, divide the surface area by the volume.

The same volume of an object, The simplest regular tetrahedron polyhedron, calculate the surface area. The surface area is pentahedral small surface area than the regular tetrahedron Regular hexahedron surface area than the surface area is small pentahedral . . . . If it is known is N-face surface area of ​​the body, there are N +1 is smaller the surface area of ​​the surface When N tends to infinity for a long time, Serve the sphere surface. ------mecose

it is still surface area

surface area/ volume. wider range of surface area to volume is better for cells.
