The expected lung capacity can be calculated from body surface area (BSA), which, in turn, can be estimated from height (in centimeters) and weight (in kilograms) (Mosteller, 1987; Halls, 2003; Muskopf, 2003). Here is the equation for BSA:

BSA(m^2) = sqrt[height(cm)*mass(kg)/3600]

To estimate vital capacity (in liters), multiply BSA by 2.5 for males, and by 2.0 for females.
