Measuring the fractal wavelength

An attempt to measure the fractal wavelength. Rational This entry came (to me) from working on the fractal spiral, the fractal wave, and de Broglie demand curve entries. I thought - as it is impossible to measure both time and distance - that it may be possible to measure - even if only in principle - the distance of the wavelength - based on a known dimension, the length of the triangle side ( l ). Background. Fig. 1 below shows the fractal and its (while developing) 'wave like' nature. It shows the wave takes 6 iterations to repeat or produce one cycle, but it does not show the length of the wave, the wavelength ( λ). Fig. 1  Measuring the wavelength, an experiment. I came to me that through a simple 'experiment', the wavelength ( λ) may be measure, or at least better understood. Method: Take the iteration 0 triangle, and post it on a wall.  Cut out from a paper print the iteration 1 triangle from the fully developed Koch snowflake  Hold the pape
