von Schelling developed a formula for predicting the body surface area from height and weight.
(1) body weight in kilograms
(2) body height in centimeters
body surface area in square cm =
= 5.3175 * SQRT(10 * (body height in cm)) * (body weight in kilograms)
body surface area in square meters =
= (body surface area in square cm) / 10,000
