Design help.

Could someone "help" design a enclosure for me? I was thinking of 14 (effective) ft^3 in some sort of triangular prism. 4X" tall\(long), 20-26" wide, and however deep/(tall) it would need to be.

Volume of a triangular prism= B/2 x H x L = 1/2 x Base x Height x Length.

1/2 base length of (say) 2' = 1'

4' high x 1' = 4 square feet area of triangular face.

14 cu ft / 4 = 3.5' deep.

Prism Enclosure of 14 cu feet = 4' high x 2' wide base x 3.5' deep front to back.

The wider you make the base the shallower the box can be from front to back (prism length).

4' high x 4' wide base = 14 / 8 = 21" length = 14 cubic feet.

4' high x 3' wide base = 14 / 3.5 = 2' length = 14 cubic feet.

Etc.
