This is why I wanted the equation, I dislike having to use
lookup tables, and with something like wire gauge, which
doesn't need to be (and would be highly impractical to
attain) perfectly accurate, an equation is a good solution,
even if it doesn't match established numbers at the 15th
decimal place.
