### How do you calculate the surface-area-to-volume-ratio?

The surface-area-to-volume ratio may be calculated as follows: -- Find the surface area of the shape. -- Find the volume of the shape. -- Divide the surface area by the volume. The quotient is the surface-area-to-volume ratio.

### How can you obtain a cell's ratio of surface area to volume?

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

As the cell gets bigger, the surface to volume ratio gets smaller.

### What happens to a cell's ratio of surface area to volume as the volume increases more rapidly than its surface area?

As volume increases surface area increase, but the higher the volume the less surface area in the ratio. For example. A cube 1mmx1mmx1mm has volume of 1mm3 surface area of 6mm2 which is a ration of 1:6 and a cube of 2mmx2mmx2mm has a volume of 8mm3 and surface area of 24mm2 which is a ratio of 1:3.
