            You know sometimes being too smart is harmful.
            Few simple things
            You told yourself the mass stays the same. Which means he should float into the space.
            Or there is something that MCU has not explained which helps to proportion the weight and strength
            Like how he gets tiny with so little mass but has the huge amount of strength. So.

              According to Pym particles, Ant-Man would still be just as strong as he was at normal size. So, He would still have increased speed, but not gain strength by growing larger.

                Wait didn’t you say pym-particals don’t change the mass only the volume

                So why is he so heavy you said that the Thomas and ant would float away because they stretch out the atoms

                                Dude you're missing something.
                                When ant-man turns big or small his mass won't change.(you know, the fact that only atoms in his body come close together or the reverse)

                                    Sorry to dig up comments on an old video. But, there largest and most glaring problem here isn't the square cube law, especially since it doesn't apply to Ant-Man. It is explained, repeatedly, in the comic books and the movies that Ant Man shrinks by reducing the empty space between his atoms and sub atomic particles. For this reason, he maintains his mass when he shrinks. His density is what changes. He's 1/2" tall but still weighs the same. It's pretty much the cornerstone of his power in the comics.

                                    This concept is completely and utterly dismissed when his goes giant. Because, logically, if he's spreading his atoms apart to becomes larger (note the, "without tearing myself apart," reference he makes) he's decreasing his density. Even though he's 63 ft tall he still weighs exactly the same. He should still have been as fast as he was before, but a gentle breeze would have knocked him on his ass. Not to mention break his hand like paper mache when he swiped at the truck.

                                    There are other problems when he shrinks down to the quantum realm. The first obstacle is he could only shrink down so far before collapsing into a quantum singularity, which, I think was mentioned in passing in the video. The second being that you can only reduce the space between particles so far before you run out of space and then you've got a massive cluster of atoms mashed together. And, I can't even begin to imagine the math for that. So, for me, going giant is still the most irritating thing because it's based on the inverse of the shrinking which they explained in detail with the strict rule that no mass is being created or destroyed.

                                          In the last Ant-Man Theory you specifically said that "pym-particles don't change the mass of an object, just the distance between all the particles within that object." Just wanted to say because it would seem that his volume would increase and therefore would would not cause him to overheat, but freeze to death after a while, unless some weird Super Hero Metabolism saves him. And at the same time, going small would cause him to overheat instead of causing him to freeze to death. After all, every living thing has heat to generate and release. How he could stand, because Density happens to be a factor of Gravitational force, weight, it would mean that being big would cause him to be lighter and being smaller would cause him to be heavier. With those types of scales, 121;142, they will be gigantic factors, unless Density is not a factor... Then my Physics Teacher in 8th Grade has lied to me. I am a Senior in Highschool btw. Just some thoughts here if what you said in the previous theory was true and it only affects the size and density.

                                            Wouldn't he die from heart problems? I believe i saw somewhere that as the body gets bigger on a linear scale the heart has to work harder on an exponential scale, for ant man to suddenly grow from 5ft. 10in. to lets say 50 ft. the heart would be placed under an exponentially increased amount of stress and (even with scaled up values) wouldn't be able to cope with the immense volume and weight of his blood and the distance said blood needs to travel, the blood would likely begin to pool in the lower veins, arteries, etc. He'd have a straight up heart attack and rapidly lose consciousness due to the brain being starved of blood.

                                            I believe somewhere in this video will better explain what i'm saying:

                                                            So when he scales upwards his mass should still stay the same as well. I believe you said that the number of atoms in his body doesn’t change. But the space between his atoms does. So.. what’s going on here?
