The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) used 2 equations to determine the surface area of the hand.


(1) sex

(2) weight in kg

(3) height in centimeters


hand surface area for a male in square cm =

= (257/2) * ((weight)^0.573) / ((height)^0.218)


hand surface area for a female in square cm =

= (131/2) * ((weight)^0.412) * ((height)^0.0274)
