It would help to know why what!

It increases.

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

Cellular activity often takes place at the interface between the cell and its surroundings - other cells or the environment. This area of activity is greater when the area to volume ratio is higher - not lower.

Area ratio = (edge-length ratio)2 Volume ratio = (edge-length ratio)3 Volume ratio = (area ratio)3/2

What happens to a cells surface area to volume ratio as it increases in size?

Surface area to volume ratio

The ratio increases. Farting does not occur

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

The surface area ratio will increase

Larger cells will have a greater surface area-to-volume.

Cells are limited in size by surface area and volume. The surface area to volume ratio explains the small size of cells
