# Tangent spheres

A sphere with a radius of 1 m is placed in the corner of the room. What is the largest sphere size that fits into the corner behind it?

Additional info: Two spheres are placed in a corner of a room. The spheres are each tangent to the walls and floor and tangent to each other.

Result

r =  0.268 m
