Is there a formula to figure out the depth of condensate traps?

The formula:
f(x) = (integral)(0inf) ( a(y) cos yx + b(y) sin yx ) dy
a(y) = 1/PI (integral)(inf>inf) f(t) cos ty dt
b(y) = 1/PI (integral)(inf>inf) f(t) sin ty dt
f(x) = 1/PI (integral)(0inf) dy (integral)(inf&thinf)f(t) cos (y(xt)) dt
Or, you can just do what I do and make the trap depth equal to the total static pressure of the air handling unit plus one inch."If you do not know the answer, say, "I do not know the answer", and you will be correct!"
