We show how a central limit theorem for Poisson model random polygons implies a central limit theorem for uniform model random polygons. To prove this implication, it suffices to show that in the two models, the variables in question have asymptotically the same expectation and variance. We use integral geometric expressions for these expectations and variances to reduce the desired estimates to the convergence (1+α/n) n→ eα as n → ∞.
