The cut board of 22х100х6 in size occupies 0,0132 cubic meters. The cubic meter contains 45,46 square meters of such board.

The lath with sizes of 22х50х3 occupies 0,0033 cubic meters. The cubic meter contains 909 running meters of such lath.


Calculation business gorbylya is in a special way made. Timber is sorted on two groups on length (to 2 meters inclusive more long than 2 meters).
