`Greenhouse_"surface area" = f( "W" , "H" , "L" )`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Greenhouse Surface Area equation (Quonset shaped) **calculates the exterior surface area of a greenhouse based on simple measurements. This includes the roof and both ends.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose the preferred units and enter the following:

- (L) Length of the greenhouse
- (H) Height of the greenhouse
- (W) Width of the greenhouse

**Greenhouse Surface Area:** The calculator returns the surface area (A) in square feet. However this can be automatically converted to other are units via the pull-down menu..

The surface area calculation is a simple computation summing the lateral area sides of the green house defined by the semicircle of radius H times the roof area. The default input units are feet, and the calculator returns cubic feet. However, vCalc lets the user can choose one of many length and volume units for automatic conversion from the pull-down list for both the input length units and the output volume units.

The surface area of a greenhouse is useful for calculating construction material needs and for computing the conductive heat loss of the greenhouse.
