Silly question about bass traps measure interpretation

Hello, I'm using the acousticmodelling porous absorver calculator to see which thickness and air gap is best for the amount of glass wool that im able to buy.
But I got a little confused on how to measure the bass traps.

If i make a superchuk bass trap, wich measurement indicates the thickness (or depth) of the trap? I will attach image A and B below to point out the two different measures that confuse me. I dont know which one is acousticmodelling calculator referring.

Thanks in advance.

Yes. It's a common way to use the average depth to calculate the absorption.
