How is mesh area calculated?

Multiply the Mesh Count x Wire Diameter.

1. 40 x 0.010 = 0.400. Subtract the result above from 1.
2. 1 – 0.400 = 0.600. Square the above result (multiply by itself).
3. 0.600 x 0.600 = 0.36. Multiply the result by 100.
4. 100 x 0.36 = 36.
5. 100 x 0.0045 = 0.45.
6. 1 – 0.450 = 0.55.
7. 0.55 x 0.55 = 0.3025.
8. 100 x 0.3025 = 30.25.
