equation

 [e-kwa´zhun]
an expression of equality between two parts.
Henderson-Hasselbalch equation a formula for calculating the pH of a buffer solution such as blood plasma, pH = pKa + log [BA/HA]; [HA] is the concentration of a free weak acid; [BA] the concentration of the ionized form of this acid; pKa the acid dissociation constant, a measure of the ionization equilibrium of the acid.

Patient discussion about equation

Q. how do i determine what is the right weight i need to be? i know there is a way to calculate it, an equation , what are the parameters in it ?

A. I don't mean to burst any bubbles, but BMI is definitely not a good way to determine what weight you should be. If you considered that a body builder or a professional athlete is considered obese under BMI standards then you would know what I mean. Here is an article about it I found on Medical News Today: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/49991.php

The LA method attempts to approximate the curve on which these centroids lie by a straight line, and then moves along this line in the direction of the solution point x to obtain an approximate solution, [x.
Determining the hyperplane that produces a point closest to the desired solution point x is non-trivial, however.

If an iteration point i is not a cold miss point of a reference R along a reuse vector r and there exist at least k distinct solution points at i in the union of all the solution sets of the replacement CMEs of r, then R suffers a replacement miss at i along r.
