Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] Bandwidth-Delay Product

I could use some in understanding the Bandwithd-Delay Product, round tripe time verses one way latency. I know the formula:

BDP(bits) = available_bandwidth (bits/sec) x round_trip_time (sec)

BDP(bits) = available_bandwidth (bits/sec) x one_way_latency (sec)

In my searches, I've seen it calculated both ways. I could use some in-site as to when and why to use round_trip_time verses one_way_latency.
