Modulus Function

Calculates A mod B for A > 0 and B > 0.   Since the fx-3650p has no integer or fraction part functions, a loop of repeated subtractions are needed.

Program (25 steps):
? → A : ? → B : Lbl 1 : A – B → A : A ≥ B Goto 1 : A

Examples:
Input:  A = 77, B = 9.  Result: 5
Input:  A = 92.38, B = 2.38.  Result:  1.94

Normal Distribution CDF

This calculates the area of a normal distribution curve between points A and B, given that mean = 0 and deviation = 1.  Radians mode is set.  The result is stored in C.

Program (34 steps):
? → A : ? → B : Rad : ∫ ( e (-X² ÷ 2 ), A, B → C : C ÷ √ (2 π → C

Note e is the exponential function (e^x).

Examples:
Input:  A = 0, B = 2.  Result:  0.47725066
Input:  A = -1, B = 1.  Result:  0.682709924

Sum:  Σ (AX + B)^C,  from X = 0 to X = Y

Program (51 steps):
? → A : ? → B : ? → C : ? → Y : 0 → X : 0 → M : Lbl 1 : (AX + B)^C M+ : 1 + X → X : Y ≥ X Goto 1: M

Examples:
Input:  A = 2. B = 6, C = 2, Y = 4.  Result:  540
Input:  A = -3, B = 1, C = 3, Y =6.  Result:  -9632

Sun Altitude and Azimuth Based on the Vernal Equinox

Input:
Y =  days after the vernal equinox, usually March 21
A = latitude on Earth (north-south, -90° to 90°)
X = the time before solar noon, local time

For example, for 10 AM (10:00), enter 2.  For 3 PM (15:00), enter -3.  Hence:  12 – time.

Output:
D = approximate declination of the sun (-23.45° to 23.45°)
B = sun’s altitude
C = sun’s azimuth (from ground wise north)

Program (69 steps):
? → Y : ? → A : ? → X : Deg : 23.45 sin(.9856Y → D   sin¯¹ (cos A cos D cos (15X) + sin A sin D → B cos¯¹ ( ( sin B sin A – sin D) ÷ (cos A cos B → C

Examples:

Input:  Y = 90 days, A = 25°, X = -3  (3 PM)
Results:
D = 23.44400127° = 23°26’38.4”
B = 48.81756385° = 48°49’3.23”
C = 99.85903298° = 99°51’32.52”

Input:  Y = 68 days, A = 46°, X = 4 (8 AM)
Results:
D = 21.58916369° = 21°35’20.99”
B = 35.989914° = 35°59’23.69”
C = 84.40834691° = 84°24’30.05”

Trapezoid: Midsegment, Height, and Area

Input:
A = length of top side
B = length of bottom side
C = length of left side
D = length of right side

Output:
X = Midsegment length
Y = Height
M = Area

Program (92 steps):
? → A : ? → B : ? → C : ? → D : .5(A + B → X (-A + B + C + D)(A – B + C + D)(A – B + C – D)(A – B- C- + D) → Y : √Y ÷ ( 2 √( (B – A)² ) → Y (A + B)Y ÷ 2 → M

Example:
Input:  A = 18, B = 16, C = 12, D = 11
Results:  X = 17, Y = 9.921567417, M = 168.6666461

The program calculates:

1. The solar angle of incidence given the angular elevation and azimuth (from south going “counterclockwise”:  east-north-west) of both the sun and panel.
2. The irradiance given by the solar panel.

Input:
X = elevation of the sun
A = azimuth of the sun
Y = elevation of the solar panel
Z = azimuth of the solar panel
M = the sun’s power or irradiance.  Often this is treated as a constant, which is approximately 1367 W/m^2 for extraterrestrial solar power, or approximately 1000 W/m^2 when we are dealing with the Earth’s surface (taking scattering of light into account)

Output:
C = incidence angle

Program (46 steps):
? → X : ? → A : ? → Y : ? → B : ? → M : Deg : cos¯¹ ( cos Y sin X + sin Y cos X cos (A – B → C M cos Y → D

Example:
Input:

Sun:
X = 55°24’21”
A = 175°15’44”

Panel:
Y = 40°
B = 90°

M = 1000 W/m

Results:
C = 48.6431686°
D = 766.0444431 W/m

General a list of X Random Integers from 0 to Y

This program generates a list of random integers (X) from 0 to upper limit Y.  This program uses the Fix 0 mode and makes use of the Rnd (round the number in the display) command.  Note the integers as they appear.  The program finishes by setting the calculator back in Norm 1 mode.

Program (33 steps):
? → Y : ? → X : 1 → M : Fix 0 : Lbl 1 : Ran# Y : Rnd 1 M+ : X ≥ M Goto 1 : Norm 1

Example:
Generate 5 random integers from 0 to 10.  (Y = 10, X  = 5)
Result:  6, 7, 6, 6, 10 (your results will vary)

As with the other fx-3650p I and others have posted, they can easily be adapted to the fx-50fH, fx-5800p, fx-6300g, fx-CG50, and (almost) any other Casio programming calculator.

Recently I learned that Casio updated the fx-3650P and the fx-50F(H) with the fx-3650P II and fx-50F(H) II respectively.  The only difference I was able to spot is that the fx-3650P II now has 390 programming steps instead of 360. http://www.casio-intl.com/asia/en/calc/school/programmable/

And yes, I still wish Casio sold these models in stores in the United States.  Currently, for us U.S. residents, they can only be purchased online.

Now if Casio made a solar version of the fx-6300g, with more memory.

1. There are more differences between models P and PII.
The Casio BASIC of PII model has more commands, like FOR-NEXT, WHILE-WEND loops, and IF-THEN among others mores.
Don't know if Casio updated the CPU to a faster ones.
Will appreciate a lot if someone knows more.
