Davis, F.A. Tabler's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary. F.A. Davis Company, 1993: "The surface area may be calculated by multiplying 0.007184 times the weight in kilograms raised to the 0.425 power and the height in centimeters raised to the 0.725 power." [Assume a height of 5'8" (170 cm) and a mass of 150 lb (68 kg).]" 
Comments 
"The surface area of adults is about 18,000 cm^2 (men) or 16,000 cm^2 (women)." See BNID 106177, 109707
