Staff Answer
The ratio is five to one, so you can measure a 1 inch area at 5 inches away, a 2 inch area at 10 inches away, a 4 inch area at 20 inches away and so on.

answer 2
Just took a reading at one foot (11:1 ratio) and at two feet and four feet and got the same temp. So, yes, you can move away as long as what you are reading is within the circle of you meter.
