The article proposes a fundamentally new method of calculating the real area of the on the isotropically rough surface for which the curve of Abbot-Firestone is assigned. The analytical parts of the calculations obviates the need to determine the tallness of projections and their mean curvature radius. Only the mean pitch between the projections serves as a single statistical parameter. The method is suitable also to calculate the real contact areas on run-in surfaces.
