I have posted this question in other forums and received nothing for an answer, So it's worth a shot here :-)
What is the angle elevation of the king's chamber in reference to the base of the X,Y,Z center of the pyramid?
Or should I ask the question this way?
Measuring from the center of the pyramid base to the outer wall, and from the outer wall to the Kings chamber
what would the angle be?

I tried looking at the links and the unit of measurement ... was enough to make my head spin.
The forearm of a Pharaoh = 1Rc, are they saying 7 palms make 1 RC also are they claiming
it takes 4 fingers to make a palm. So I should ask " HOW BIG A BOY IS THIS PHARAOH "

Maybe this article will help relate royal cubits to more modern measurements:
