"The law is replete with cases in which the difference between the claimed invention and the prior art is some range or other variable within the claims. ... In such a situation, the applicant must show that the particular range is critical, generally by showing that the claimed range achieves unexpected results relative to the prior art range."  In re Woodruff, 919 F.2d 1575, 1578 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (emphasis added). In the case, Applicants have not shown that the claimed angle ranges are critical.
