Hi,
Using exp(a+b) = exp(a) * exp(b) and
x = exp(ln(x)), x>0,
Alfred's formula translates to
d = exp(-0.1159489226967782 * gague - 1.125292573941649) -- in inches
d = exp(-0.1159489226967782 * gague + 5.782462705040488) -- in mils
So the two are essentially the same -- it's good to see formulas that
agree! From a computational standpoint, this form is somewhat better
than the one Alfred gave since it trades an addition/subtraction for a
division.
