# Packing & Covering of Objects

Packing, covering and stringing problems can be useful to efficiently use space or answer interesting hypothetical questions. Use Wolfram|Alpha's packing densities and data on hundreds of everyday objects to accurately estimate step-by-step solutions to these problems.

### Packing Problems

Find out how many 3D objects could geometrically be packed into another everyday-life object or a specific volume.

#### Estimate the number of objects required to fill a container:

#### Estimate the number of objects required to fill a specified volume:

### Stringing Problems

Find out how many common objects it would take to stretch a certain distance or around or across another object.

#### Estimate the number of objects required to circle another object:

#### Estimate the number of objects required to stretch a specified length:

### Covering Problems

Find out how many everyday-life objects could geometrically fit on another object or a specific area.
