How much wort do hops absorb in the boil?

"How much wort do hops absorb in the boil?"
The answer comes from Greg Noonan's "New Brewing Lager Beer"
whole leaf (flower) = oz./hops x 0.045gal
pellets = oz./hops x .02gal

So 2 0z of whole flower hops will absorb .09 gallons of wort. That's 1.44 Cups, .72 pints, or .34 liters.
