# Question #c2c04

##### 1 Answer

No -- as the cell grows in size its surface area to volume ratio decreases.

#### Explanation:

According to the Square-Cube Law, as an object grows while retaining its shape its volume increases faster than its surface area.

This can be shown easily with two hypothetical "cells" -- a cube and a sphere.

The surface area of a cube is given by the formula

The surface area of a sphere is given by the formula

This trend is consistent with all shapes.
