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

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.

1).A library crew can shelve books in six hours.Another crew can do the job in four hours.If the first crew begins and is joined by the second crew one hour later,how many hours will it take for the job to be completed?1/6 + 1/4 = 1/x5/12 = 1/xx = 12/5In one hour, the first crew completed one-sixth of the job.5/6 of the job remains.5/6 × 12/5 = 2Hence the hours required to complete the job is 3 hours.2).A bicycle trip of 90 mi would have taken an hour lessif the average speed had been increased by 3 mi/h.Find the average speed of the bicycle.Distance / Speed = Time90/x – 90/(x + 3) = 190(x + 3) – 90x = x(x + 3)x^2 + 3x – 270 = 0(x – 15)(x + 18) = 0The average speed o the bicycle is 15 miles per hour.

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.
