That is of course an average, because some of those feet have a larger cross section than others. I would also guess that there is a superproportional relationship between length and weight, somewhat like that between human adults' heights and weights. For a given body mass index (BMI) for human adults, the weight would be the square of the height. I would expect something like that for the relationship between a whale's length and weight.
