1. The area and circumference of surface fibres of sartorius muscles were measured from photomicrographs of frozen sections of whole muscles, and compared with the values obtained assuming a circular cross-section. The latter assumption gave an over-estimate of the mean area of 28%, but only a 2% over-estimate of the circumference. In isolated, single fibres, the assumption gave over-estimates of 25 and 6%, of area and circumference respectively
