    calculating a slanted box

    well, my sealed box is slanted and i want to measure the interior. now, how do measure the slant on the back of the box? the rest of the box is all at 90 degree angles. i measured from the very top to the top at the back of the box, the middle and bottom the same way. as you go from top to bottom, the box gets longer in depth.

    thx

    Go here: http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/boxcalcs.asp

    They have a slated box volume calculator...

    Re: calculating a slanted box

    Take the opposite side's length, add it to to the slant length and divide by 2 to get a rough estimate. So for instance:

    Slant side: 8"
    Opoosite non slant side: 10"

    8+10= 18/2 =9" use this as your measurement.

    cu foott = 1728 cu inches

    Re: calculating a slanted box

    but its strange??? on bcae1.com and their calculator i get = 0.686 total volume

    and with 12volt.com calculator, i get 0.73372

    why? i enter these numbers:

    thickness .75 < but dont need to use this number since i have the exact INSIDE dimensions

    INSIDE:

    width 10.5"
    height 10.5"
    depth 1 at top > 9.5"
    depth 1 at bottom > 12"

    now the bcae1.com calculator has the picture of the same way mine is designed, with 2 DEPTH measurements.

    but 12volt.com doesnt have 2 DEPTH measuremnets, it says 2 HEIGHT measuremnets. i thought it would work out the same, just that one box is flipped around then the one on the bcae1.com site. its weird

    put ZERO in for wood thickness and use the internal dimensions

    Re: calculating a slanted box

    a triangle is half a rectangle.
    measure the two right angle sides to make a rectangle and divide by 2.
    use INTERNAL distances to get INTERNAL volume though!

    Semantics!!! if its an equilatteral triangle its going to be a square!! or a rhombus if you wanna get crazy... or hell paralleogram fits the bill too!

    Re: calculating a slanted box

    got me. I should say, in his case. Use the calculator to find the volume of a box that is side 2 tall by side 3 minus side 1 wide by side 5 deep, then divide by 2 for the volume of the 'triangle part.' Add that to the volume of a box that is side 1 by side 2 by side 5 to get total.
    1
    ___ ---------------
    | \ | |
    2 | \ 4 2| |
    |------- ---------------
    3 5

    *edit* great. that looks like @ss when i post it!!!
