Estimate how many books can be shelved in a college library with 3200 square meters of floor space. Assume 7 shelves high, having books on both sides, with each side 25 cm wide, and 1/4 of total floor space covered by shelving. Assume books are about the size of this one (20 cm wide, 4 cm thick), on…

First of all, ¼ of 3200 is 800. Therefore, 800 square meters of floor space will be taken up by shelves.With books on both sides, 25cm & 25cm is 50cm, or 0.5meters is the depth of the shelves.This means that we can have a total length of 800 m^2 / 0.5 m = 1600 meters of total bookshelf length. (imagine, for the purposes of calculation, that we have 1 bookshelf that is 1600 meters long and 0.5 meters deep.The thickness of each book is 4cm, or 0.04m, therefore we can fit 1600 / 0.04 = 40,000 books on each row of each side.Multiply this result by 2 to get 80,000 books on each row on both sides combined.And finally, multiply 80000 by 7 stacks high to get a total of 560,000 books.Estimate: 560,000 books

Help with physics magnitude estimating.

Estimate how many books can be shelved in a college library with 3500 square meters of floor space. Assume 8 shelves high, having books on both sides, with corridors 1.5 m wide. Assume books are about the size of a normal textbook (2 inches thick), on average?The answer is 700000 books, I want to know how to…

so the only thing not defined in the problem is the geometry of the library. So let’s try to think a little bit a library could be only one row and bocks on both sides and the other so now fold the library in two so that it has 1/4 in each extreme and 1/2 in the middle (the middle shell has two sides) it’s the same has the first one so no place is lost nor gained we can do the calculation for the first case the rest will be equal no need to complicate things,so the length is 3500/1.5 and 8 shelf’s 2 sides to the corridor:number of books= (total length)/(length of a book):(3500/1.5)*8*2/25.4e-3=1400 000 WHICH IS TWICE what you have because they do not consider that shelves have two sides and/or books at each extremity, my estimate is more realistic

Publishing poems/ how many.

How many poems do you need on average to publish a book of poems? I want to set myself a goal to reach.

Spend some time browsing the poetry section at your local library or bookstore. That’s a good way to find out how many poems tend to appear in a published book.And keep in mind that no legitimate publisher will be interested in a book of your poems until you have established a track record by publishing lots of individual poems in print and online magazines. A good way to shoot for your goal is to start submitting your poems to various journals. For information about magazines that publish poetry, look at the book “Poet’s Market” (your local library might have a copy), and at this website:http://www.duotrope.com/index.aspx

Did the average american own books in 1920s.

Going to have to excuse my ignorance a little bit! I had a few questions about 1920s and literature. Any and all answers you have – please list them!1- In the average American home in the 1920s – did people own books? How many? I mean one or two or 20 or 30?2- Nowadays books cost 99 cents to hundreds of…

1. Since TV and Internet weren’t around yet books were one of the main sources of entertainment. Many people would subscribe to circulating libraries or read serialized novels in magazines, but I believe most of them owned books as well. Books have been relatively cheap ever since the invention of the printing press back in the 1400’s, so after that being able to afford them generally wasn’t an issue for people, and mail-order catalogs were invented in the 1870’s, so after it quickly became fairly easy to get ahold of things even if they didn’t live near stores that sold them.2. Depends on the book- obviously a jewel-encrusted leather-bound book would have been massively expensive, but paperbacks were quite affordable because they could be mass-produced (see above). I don’t know what exactly what they would have cost but here is a list of what some other things cost in 1920 so hopefully you can get an idea of what a dollar was worth and base it off that:Movie ticket: 15cPostage stamp: 2cAverage income: $2,160/yr3. I would just Google something like “books published 19th and 20th centuries” and you will see what books were out.

How wide is the average book.

I am trying to find out how many linear feet, on average, X books would take up on library shelves. Is there a general rule of thumb or scientifically tested idea that says “the average book is X cm wide?” I’m not talking about height or depth, although those statistics would be interesting, too. …

There is a book architects use called Architectural Graphic Standards. Published by Wiley and Son. It gives you information that helps you in space planning. Things like the proper height for a countertop (36 inches) or how much space you should allow for circulation between the chairs and the wall in a dining room (15 inches) or how much space is needed for a wheelchair turnaround in a handicapped bathroom stall (5 feet). When you are space planning, you use the book and look the standards up.Standards are based on human dimensions. You study ergonomics and even anatomy in architecture school. You can look up standards like how long the human arm can reach, etc. Those numbers influence your design.The standard for books THICKNESS is one to two inches. If I was going to design a library for someone who had 1,000 books, I would use 1,000 to 2,000 running inches of shelf space plus an average of 20% for expansion. New books added to the collection. The correct depth would be 12 inches. Height, you would vary to accommodate different types of books – depending on the collection.Hope that helps. Pax – CRead my answer again, hon. I did tell you the standard. I checked it in Architectural Graphic Standards for Interiors.

How many books do you read each year.

I have graduated from the university for a year. In this year, I read less than 10 books. That’s terrible.How many books do you read each year? Do you think it’s enough?

I estimate that on average I completely read 18-24 novels under 400 pages and around 2-4 large novels, 12-18 philosophical works, 3-6 psychology books, 0-3 short story collections, 6-12 poetry collections, 0-3 plays, and a few textbooks on assorted topics. For every book I finish reading there is about 3 that I didn’t like, so I didn’t waste my time finishing. I am reading a dozen books right now and I probably wont finish half of them.It is never enough. If you locked me in a library and all I did was read all day I still wouldn’t be able to read as much as want to.

How many books does the average person read per month.

I read about 6-8. Depending on the book, how much free time I have etc. If it’s one of my favourites that I’m re-reading like “To Kill a Mockingbird” By Harper Lee, “Angela’s Ashes” by Frank Mc Court or “Macbeth” by Shakespeare, then I’ll read more. If it’s something that I have to concentrate on, then it’ll take longer.If you can instill a love of reading in a child at a young age, then it is the best gift that you can ever give then. It goes from the cradle to the grave and costs nothing. You can go to the public library and you never have to buy an upgrade pack like you do with computer games as new books come out all the time. There is a genre for everyone. Teach your kids to read, folks, and they’ll never be bored.

  1. Original average speed riding 90 miles was 15 mph and took 6 hoursLater average speed riding 90 miles was 18 mph and took 5 hours

  2. on my part I read about 10-15 books a month.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_sizeI'm in university right now. I probably read about 5-10 books a year. I don’t have time at all during school, I read curriculum not books for enjoyment. During the summer I definitely read more since school is out.Here are some links on book sizes that you may find helpful:Workrate of A and B together is 1/6 + 1/4 = 5/12 of books per hour(s + 3)(90/s – 1) = 90

  3. Second crew shelves ¼ of the books per hour.Depends upon the reading capacity of the person too…

  4. It used to be at least 30. Then I started Uni, and it became the number of books that were prescribed in our “recommended reading” list – pages from textbooks, really.

  5. The hazard of economic collapse just isn’t in the poverty that ensues, even though it can be unsafe to a nation if say China needs to invade. I consider the real and gift threat is the steel reserves going into this middle-east battle, and nothing left but stone-age equipment to protect towards any individual who wishes to soak up the pearl laid at their toes. Americans, regardless of their aggressive policies, usually are not prepared for a adversarial take-over from a country that is stock-piling assets.

  6. and total = h + 1 = 3and 2nd crew-> BIn the average home, yes they had books….keep in mind most American families then had at least 1 book, a family Bible. But other books depended on the economic and social standing of the family. (and level of education) But you could buy books back then for $.05 and up to several dollars or more. The educational level of the family members made a difference too. College educated people and their kids had and read books, rural farmers didn’t read quite so many. But buying books and keeping them was as much of as a hobby…if not more so…than now. In the 20’s reading is a popular hobby. Movies were new, there was no tv, no internet of course, people sat around and read everyday. Keep in mind this. Barnes & Noble opened their first store in NYC in 1917, and it has moved down the block, but it’s still there a hundred years later. People had to have bought books otherwise they wouldn’t be in business.http://www.santacruzpl.org/readyref/files/a-b/books.shtml

  7. The time taken to ride 90 miles at an average speed of s mph, minus the time taken to ride 90 miles at an average speed of (s + 3) mph is 1 hourI usually schedule 2 for each month, so 24 each year with a +-2 variation. Usually keep it mixed with fiction, non-fiction. Non-fiction include atleast 2 biographies, 2 science, 2-3 business, 2-3 about technology.

  8. put value of t from 1st equation which is 90/sAn average fiction book (novel) has 50K to 80K words. Each page should contain 250 words– double spaced, font size 12, courier new or arial, 1 inc. margin and 25 lines per page. So, let’s say that you have written 50K words. That’s 200 pages. In MSword, well, that’s different. The above mentioned computations are just the standard ones (used when you submit your manuscript for publication.) More or less, the number of words which could be typed in one page of MSword document is between 20-30 words (observing the double space, font style and size. Oh, and the margin too.) Good luck. -tepishane-

  9. (1) let First crew-> As^2 + 3s – 270 = 0It depends on what reading materials your pertaining to ..Well, in my teens up to having a baby at 36, I would read 2-4 per month. Since then, except for baby books, it is more like 2-3 a year… 🙁

  10. (2) st = d , where s is speed, t is time and d is distanceI read upwards of 30-40 books a month, but I know I am way above the average. My sister doesn’t read books at all – only magazines. Which of us is closer to the “average” person?

  11. First crew shelves ⅙ of the books in the first hour.6/4=1.5, 6-1=5, 5/2.5=2 hours, 1+2=3 hours both crews.

  12. It’s not nearly enough, but I just keep waiting for the holidays so I can submerge myself in fantasy once again. :)The hours A and B take to shelve remaining 5/6 of books is (5/6)/(5/12) = 2I can’t speak for the “average” person, as my boyfriend doesn’t read books at all, and I read up to 4 books a month, depending on the length. If you average us out, maybe the average people read 1 or 2 books a month?

  13. orI don’t know about the average, but I read about 28 to 30 every month and have been for over 50 years. I have read over 565,000 books in my lifetime and am hoping I will read over a million before I leave this vale. Although, the books are becoming larger and I am slowing down some.

  14. average I bet can read about 1 per month …I read A LOT. So…maybe 2 or 3 each couple weeks so that’d be…each month…Not sure, more than 10 by far. :/ It usually depends on if there are any good new books out.

  15. Obviously if you’re also considering large compilations of works, encylcopedias, textbooks, etc., your average thickness will probably go up, but I still feel this is a reasonable estimate (say, for paperback novels).

  16. Are you going to self publish or e-publish? Most books of poetry are pretty small. One poem to a page? Go for eighty to a hundred maybe. Here’s a link to my current poetry project:

  17. I’ll use the The Penguin Classics Library Complete Collection to help you arrive at an estimate. These trade paperback books are usually of classic novels, plays, epics, or other important works, with contextual information in them. I find that the pages are a bit thinner than in comporable trade paperback books. Anyway the collection contains a total of 1,082 books, and takes about 77 linear feet (23.5 m).

  18. I’d say….hmmm let’s see 2 books per week times 4 weeks…. I’d say 8ish? Oh wait… u said the average person…. that’s different…. try a book and a half maybe… if they’re lucky. Some people just can’t find the time to sit down and read a book.

  19. Between 35 and 50, depending on the books and the amount of free time I have.. I definitely could read more but I think it’s enough, I’d go broke if I read anymore. I have an obsession with buying/ reading books.

  20. I think 10 books isn’t bad. You can definitely read a lot more since you said you’ve graduated. Unless you have a job and that takes up some of your time.

  21. Together, they shelve ⅙+¼ = 5/12 of the books per hour.The Scholastic Inc.; Reprint edition (January 1, 2007) paperback has 144 pages
