Calculate the number of grains required to achieve a desired level of sampling resolution
Returns the number of grains that need to be analysed to decrease the likelihood of missing any fraction greater than a given size below a given level.
get.n(p = 0.05, f = 0.05)
the probability that all n grains in the sample have missed at least one fraction of size f
the size of the smallest resolvable fraction (0<f<1)
the number of grains in the sample
the number of grains needed to reduce the chance of missing at least one fraction f of the total population to less than p
