Calculation of Theoretical Total Number of Reflections (ignoring symmetry)The theoretical number of reflections to a given resolution limit is given by:N = [(4/3)*pi*2^{3} / lambda^{3}] * V * (sin(theta_max))^{3}, but sin(theta_max) = lambda/(2*d), so
N = [(4/3)*pi*2^{3} / lambda^{3}] * V * (lambda/2*d)^{3}], N = [(4/3)*pi*2^{3} * V /(2*d)^{3}]
N = the expected number of reflections
