What does this stand for?

N = C + {fb(cm) ยท fb(tc)} + fb(Ts) + fc ยท ta.

Apparently, it’s the scientific formula for the perfect bacon sandwich. I read the full article, “The Perfect Bacon Sandwich Decoded: Crisp and Crunchy”, and I don’t know whether to laugh or to be amazed. I guess both.

A group of British scientists from Leeds University spent 1,000 hours studying and testing 700 hundred variants of this sandwich that Brits locally call, “butty.”

The conclusion?

Ideally, Danish Bacon said, 0.4 newtons should be applied to crunch the sandwich, creating 0.5 decibels of noise. The formula uses these values: N = force in newtons; fb is the function of the bacon type; fc is the function of the condiment or filling effect; Ts is the serving temperature; tc is cooking time; ta is the time taken to insert the condiment or filling; cm is the cooking method and C represents the breaking strain in newtons of uncooked bacon.

What the…?

Help?

Anyone?
