In order to determine the limits of tolerance that can be permitted when method 1[link] is used, the R factor was examined as a function of the sum-of-partialities for the ϕX174 procapsid data (Fig.[link]). Reflections with sum-of-partialities of [1 \pm 0.3] were used. The R factor changes sharply when the sum-of-partialities is outside [1 \pm 0.15]. Hence, [\pm 0.15] were acceptable limits of tolerance for this data set.

R factor as a function of the difference of calculated `sum-of-partialities' and unity for the estimates of full reflections when method 1[link] is used for the scaling and averaging of a ϕX174 data set (Dokland et al., 1997[link]).
