    This is not something I am familiar with, but I think the key point is the statement that: "for example, the values for and are the same for all " and so it simplifies to .

    Also, as it is an observational law I assume the "reason" is that works.
    You can do everything right, strictly according to procedure, on the ocean and it'll still kill you, but if you're a good navigator at least you'll know where you were when you died.
