How much pipe wrap tape do I need to wrap a pipe?

Its a simple enough mathematical calculation, made simpler by the chart below.  The first column is the nominal size of the pipe. The third, fourth and fifth columns tell you your requirements per 100 lineal feet of pipe, using a spiral wrap with both a 1" and a 50% over lap. 

Be sure to note that as per common industry standards the length of the roll changes for the 6" wide tape. Double check your product before going to the jobsite as many manufacturers vary between 50 and 100 foot standards, regardless of the width.
