<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js"

</script>
<script src="getSizeChilds.js"></script>

2. Get the total size of child elements.

<div class="container">
  <h2>Element 1</h2>
  <h2>Element 2</h2>
  <h2>Element 3</h2>
  ...
</div>
.container
{
  display:inline-block;
  height:300px;
  overflow-y: scroll;

$(function(){

  var size = $('.container').getSizeChilds();
