The "Rule of Thumb" that I learned years ago was that when you approximated 
anything by a number of segments and was unsure about the accuracy of the 
results, double the number of segments.  Repeat until the solution you get is 
close enough to the result obtained with the previous number of segments, 
then you doubled the number of segments once too often.
