The average height of an attic 2008-09-12
From oliver:
I need to find out the average height of a specific volume/area.
a standard house shape side walls height 10m, height in centre of house 15m.
width 15m length 25m (the roof spans the width)
Within the house in the corner there is a (box shape) room which is 5m in height by 3m wide and 4 m long
How do i work out the average height of the space directly above the room (same floor area)?
