Scientific Advantage™ Calculator Features
 
Units and Conversions
  • Entry and display of special formats:
    • Feet-inches-fraction (e.g., 24' 7-3/16")
    • Inches-fraction (e.g., 287-5/8")
    • Degrees-minutes-seconds (e.g., 52.9.8)
    • Hours-minutes-seconds (e.g., 5:21:50)
    • Minutes-seconds (e.g., 125:32)
    • Fractions (e.g., 14-9/125, 32-1/2 kg)
    • Binary, octal, and hexidecimal (e.g., 101101, 55, 2D)
  • User-selectable inch fraction denominator (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, or 1000)
  • Converts among and computes with over 200 different units (ft, m, lb, yd3, etc.), including both English/Imperial and SI/Metric units
  • Computes directly with dimensional values (e.g., 70 lb/ft3 x 5 yd3 = 9450 lb)
  • Supports and converts among multiple bases: decimal (i.e., standard base 10), binary, octal, and hexidecimal
  • Currency conversions with update of exchange rates over the Internet. Supports 12 currencies.
Keypads and Entry Logic
  • Algebraic and RPN entry modes (user selectable)
  • Choice of feet-inchs-fraction entry modes using either the 16-key keyboard or decimal delimited entry. For example, to enter 4' 3-21/32", you would press:
    • With 16-key keypad: [4] [3] [2] [1] [.] [3] [2]
    • With decimal delimited entry: [4] [.] [3] [.] [2] [1] [.] [3] [2]
  • Dedicated buttons for picking the units that you use most often (you can assign the units that you want to these buttons)
  • Mini-keypad for easy entry when working with Solvers, Financial Calculations, etc.
Advanced Math Functions
  • Triginometric - sin, cos, tan, asin, acos, atan
  • Logarithmic - log, ln, 10x, ex
  • Power - x2, square root, yx
  • Hyperbolic - sinh, cosh, tanh, asinh, acosh, atanh
  • Bessel functions - J0, J1, Y0, Y1, I0, I1, K0, K1
  • Gamma function
  • Error function
  • Factorial
  • Random number
Automatic Solvers
  • Circle
  • Cone
  • Cube
  • Cylinder
  • Rectangular Box
  • Sphere
  • Triangle - Oblique
  • Triangle - Right

References
  • Chemical element data shown in the periodic chart and listed in various groupings. Detailed data for each element includes:
    • Name
    • Symbol
    • Atomic number
    • Group
    • State at atmospheric conditions
    • Electron configuration
    • Atomic weight
    • Boiling point temperature
    • Melting point temperature
    • Density
  • Physical constants (over 300) listed alphabetically or in one of several groups
  • Recent list showing reference values that you recently used (recalled)
Display Options
  • Choice of display precision, including fixed decimal places or significant figures
  • Option to reduce inch fractions to the least common denominator or leave them unreduced (e.g., 1/2" vs 16/32")
  • Option to show or not show a zero before inch fractions (e.g., 5' 0-3/4" vs 5' 3/4")
Additional Features
  • "Paperless tape" that keeps your last 20 entries (you can also recall tape values to the main display)
  • Memory with 10 locations - all support store, recall, add (M+), and subtract (M-)
  • Easy input and editing, including backspace and ability to click the main display value to re-enter edit mode
  • Ability to print and/or save Solver results (Windows version only)
  • Automatically stores display, stack, tape, memory, and solver values when the software shuts down and restores these values when you restart the calculator
