Next Topic. A physics based simple formula for hand capacitance which is reliable in practice of theremin is probably not to be found. So I can add a simple approach for tests and discussion. 

After searching many of published material I did not found anything reliable about this topic. Physical formulas to calculate capacitance of rods, plates ore between them overestimate the capacitance because they always assume, that the whole electric field consists only between them. No experiment validates such fomulas in the far distance. However, plate to hand area gives better results as rod section to hand area. 

So I try to make another approach for longer distances. An old theremin grand dame is supposed to help me soon.
