    I did that and I know what it does.... I'm trying to make sense out of it and understand what I see. Thanks though.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Yes, that is correct. I should have been more specific.
    That's why it is so cumbersome to work with actual apertures. They are not easily determined. Working with f/stops is a lot simpler, in my opinion.

    No, since the CoC are not the same.
    Correct, if both film formats are enlarged to the same print size, the smaller format will have less DoF with the same focal length and f/stop, because it was enlarged more. Remember, we are always assuming the same print viewing distance.

    Correct. The angle of view (a) is given by the equation below:

    a = 2*arctan(d/2*f)

    where ‘d’ is the dimension of the negative-format diagonal and ‘f’ is the focal length.

    I am always mildly amused by these lengthy technical discussions.
    I'm glad you're entertained and still hanging in there. I always learn something during these lengthy technical discussions. Not just talking about it, and going out there and do it, is important. But, knowing what to do when out there also helps.
