A corridor is 2 units wide and has a corner of 90 degrees leading into a corridor
that is 1.6 units wide and with both corridors having a ceiling height of 3 units.
Determine the maximum length of a pipe of diameter .5 unit that can be moved around the corner.

Too high. Under 5.
Did you accomodate for .5 diameter?
