comment Sixth Power Law
@corsiKa It means "proportional to", its a way of supressing the irrelevant constants (here $A, \rho_f, \rho_p, \theta$), to allow the reader to focus on the main relationships between $m, r$ and $v$.

comment How literally should you take “The Higgs boson gives other particles mass”?
The common phrasing is that "the Higgs boson gives particles mass" -- my question is about whether its inaccurate to think that this 125GeV particle is relevant in day to day, human scale physics.

I don't think that hydrofoil is the correct analogy here.

If you have a specific model for how the Fourier transform of the object behaves at large $k$ you can avoid the magnification of the noise.
