# Total surface area of a human lung ? watch

1. The average number of alveoli in each human is 280 million
The average surface area of 1 million is 0.25m3

Calculate the total surface area of a human lung
2. You have the value for 1 million, and you know there are 280 million. So its just a simple multiplication.

1. This smells like homework. Do your own homework.
2. If you can't get a calculator and type "280*0.25=" you certainly aren't in a position to issue orders to folk online.
3. Surface area is not, never was, and never will be measured in cubic metres. Think about it.
4. It's not homework we're doing corrections on our test paper that we did in biology
