Hi! I read stuff on your site about the koch fractals and i was wondering, are real snowflakes like, fractal in shape (like the Koch snowflake)?
In our research, we never came upon snowflakes being mentioned as fractals. However, the intricate designs of real snowflakes do, in fact, resemble some fractals, such as the Koch Snowflake you mentioned. We suspect that snowflakes indeed show some degree of fractal nature.
Thank you for using the Fractals Unleashed Q & A utility. We hope your question has been answered.
