    one needs to estimate or calculate how many cellular phones can fill the front seat's leg room of a BMW Z4 (Only the leg room of both the front seats and not on the seats)- a range of Samsung handsets are filled up to the seat level only,

    I believe their is a scientific way of determining the answer. I just
    don't know how.

    The only info i have is:

    Leg room: 42"
    Front head room 37.3"

    Dimensions of Samsung SPHa500 mobile handset: 3.4" x 2.0" x 0.8"

    let me know how to work this out.

    Find the volume of the space of the car (length x width x height) and then find the volume of the phone (3.4 x 2 x .8) and then divide the first volume by the second..
