If they stand shoulder-to-shoulder, we need to know their width to answer that.
If they stand nose-to-ahem-tail, then 20 of them fit on the stick.
These answers assume, purely for the sake of discussion, that termites have
shoulders, noses, and ahem tails.
This varies by species, with the very largest termites reaching about 10 centimeters in length (4 in).
The more typical Formosan termites range from about 0.3 to 0.6 cm in length (1/8 to 1/4 in) with some queens reaching 1 to 1.5 cm (0.4 to 0.6 inches) in length, not including their wings.
well first you have to convert them both to the same metric value. I'd choose millimeters just because it's smaller.
since we have centimeters we must convert it to millimeters to find the answer.
1 centimeter is 10 millimeters so if each termite is 5 millimeters and we are working with only 10. 10/5= 2 termites that will fit.
However; the space termites would need would have to be 2-dimensional but the question is still solvable
If they stand proboscis to thorax, then 200 will fit.
If they stand side-by-side, then we need to know how fateach one is
before we can calculate the answer.
By definition 1 millimeter is equal to 1000 meters. Therefore, 200 termites could fit in 1 meter.
1/15 or 0.066... of a termite.
A termite that is 15 centimetres is one big termite!
2. There are 10mm in one centimeter.
How many termites will fit on a meter stick
I think its around 10,000 termites.
600 termites, assuming termites line up only one side of the stick.
600 termites in 3 meter sticks because a meter stick has 300 centimeters you multiply it by 2 and you get 600 as your answer
A meter stick is 100cm, therefore 20 pencils would fit on a meter stick.
3 meters is equal to 3000 millimeters. So, 3000 mm / 5 mm = 600. Thus, 600 termites would fit on 3 meter sticks.
I will base my answer on the dampwood termite, the largest termite in the USA, and which is found in the rainy forests of the Pacific Coast and in Southern Florida. The workers and soldiers of this species can grow to 5/8" (1.5875cm) in length when fully grown. Therefore you could fit 189 termites (189.98 to be pedantic) end to end on a 3 metre-long stick
