    The dimension of this fractal may be estimated by using the equation N=CrD, where N=number of fundamental units of replication, C is a constant, r is the radius of a "sampling circle," and D is the dimension of the fractal. For this fractal, a factor of three radii increases the fundamental units bounded by the circle by approximately five, yielding N=5=3D, and a dimension of approximately 1.46. (Scientific American.)
