How to calculate the Slip Distortion parameter

  1. Obtain the centroid for the lower pentagonal belt
    cent/x B5 B6 B11 B12 B9

  2. Obtain the distance D
    join PT3 X1A
    bang PT3

  3. Find the distance X
    mpln B5 B6 B11 B12 B9
    look for the distance of PT3 above that plane

  4. Calculate from
