Some more DMG numbers with STR and AC testing

My brother and I wanted to test some damage numbers as well, so we stood in front of each other and started swinging. We tested

Iron 2h mace 0 Str 25 Str 50 str
0 ac 43 59 75
50 ac 36 49 62
100 ac 32 44 56
Iron 2h spear 0 Str 25 Str 50 str
0 ac 57 78 99
50 ac 42 57 73
100 ac 35 48 61
Bare Hands 0 Str 25 Str 50 str
0 ac 14 19 24
50 ac 10 13 16
100 ac 8 10 13
1h Mace 0 Str 25 Str 50 str
0 ac 36 49 63
50 ac 26 35 45
100 ac 21 29 37
1h Sword 0 Str 25 Str 50 str
0 ac 45 61 78
50 ac 30 41 52
100 ac 24 32 41

Taking the 0 str values for dmg, I tried to figure how much mitigation was occuring due to armor. The reduction varied by weapon.

50 AC 100 AC
2h Mace 16.2% 25.5%
2h Spear 26.3% 38.5%
Fist 28.5% 42.8%
1h Mace 27.7% 41.6%
1h Sword 33.3% 46.6%

** next is pure conjecture **

After looking at those numbers I tried to find an equation that would predict the values given for dmg w/ str. The closes equation I could come up with was

(Wep dmg * (1- Dmg reduction by armor)) * (1+(Wep dmg * .015))

This equation reads. Each pt of str increases your dmg after mitigated by armor by 1.5% . After plugging that into the spreadsheet I had created, It predicted the 25 and 50 str dmg values w/in 1 whole integer.

I know the information here differs from some of the other information coming into this sub. I don't know who is right, I just wanted to put my findings out there.
