Using meters as a base length, squaring or cubing lengths smaller than 0.67m makes the square term larger than the cubed term. This fact causes certain properties of physics (how rain needs to form?) to take place, right?
So what if the standard length was not meters, but some smaller unit. Squaring 0.5m gives a larger result than cubing, but with a smaller base unit it would be smaller.
I don't know if I have explained this properly, but I feel like I'm missing something about how units of measurement are used.
