Notes

The Muscle Factor is directly proportional to the muscle component of the body and varies with the age of the infant or child.
Equation parameters such as Muscle Factor, have two or more discrete values that may be used in the calculation. The numbers in the parentheses, e.g. (0.33), represent the values that will be used.
