07092019 06:22 AMYes, you are right. My apologies  beer was calling and I just slapped the table together without thinking too much.
What Powell is talking about is the SquareCube law, where if you double the length of a cube's side, the surface area increases by the square (4 times) but the volume by the cube (8 times).
This geometric relationship applies to animals as strength, which is dependent on crosssection, squares with a doubling of size while body mass cubes.
This why, as animals get larger, the multiple of body weight they can lift and body length they can jump, decreases. Fleas can jump 200x body length, humans 4.5 times and elephants don't even bother trying.
The ratio of mass (kg) divided by height (m) cubed, is called the Ponderal Index, which is the same as the more familiar Body Mass Index (BMI), except BMI uses the square of height.
Here is the updated table, including cajun's weight correction:
Athlete Height (m) Weight (kg) Ponderal Index BMI Brits 1.98 96 12.4 24.5 Lisek 1.94 94 12.9 25.0 Tarasov 1.94 80 11.0 21.3 Lobinger 1.93 86 12.0 23.1 Otto 1.91 90 12.9 24.7 Trandenkov 1.91 80 11.5 21.9 Hartwig 1.9 82 12.0 22.7 Gataullin 1.89 79 11.7 22.1 Lukyanenko 1.89 78 11.6 21.8 Walker 1.88 86 12.9 24.3 Mack 1.88 81 12.2 22.9 Morgunov 1.88 77 11.6 21.8 Hooker 1.87 85 13.0 24.3 Stevenson 1.85 81 12.8 23.7 Kendricks 1.85 77 12.2 22.5 Burgess 1.83 83 13.5 24.8 Bubka 1.83 80 13.1 23.9 Braz 1.83 75 12.2 22.4 Markov 1.82 82 13.6 24.8 Duplantis 1.81 79 13.3 24.1 Lavillenie 1.76 69 12.7 22.3 Last edited by El Toro; 07092019 at 06:25 AM.
