PS:
I did your formula calculations in the meantime. Funny thing I notice is that the bodies of Provan's test group occupy less volume on average than those of the hypothetical test group with 3 adults à 43 kg and 5 children à 16 kg, even though the total and average weights of the latter test group are lower than those of the former:
Item_ Provan's test group_Test group with 3 adults à 43 kg and 5 children à 16 kg
(a) Number of bodies in Provan's test group_8_8
(b) Volume m³ of Provan's box_0.44_0.44
(c) Volume m³ per body = (b) ÷ (a)_0.06_0.06
(d) Concentration of bodies per cubic meter_18.18_18.18
ST's formula:
(e) Total weight of adults kg_174_129
(f) Total weight of children (1) kg_85_64
(g) Total weight of children (2) kg_7_16
(h) Total weight of test group kg_266_209
(i) Average weight of test person kg_33,25_26,13
(j) Volume occupied by adult m³_0,095940_0,090526
(k) Volume occupied by child (1) m³_0,035150_0,033684
(l) Volume occupied by child (2) m³_0,011579_0,033684
(m) Total volume m³ of (j)+(k)+(l)_0,142669_0,157895
(n) Average volume per person = (m) ÷ 3_0,047556_0,052632
(o) Persons per m³ = 1 ÷ (n)_21,03_19,00
How do you explain this?
