HP Prime and TI-84 Plus: Basic Wheatstone Full Bridge Circuit

HP Prime and TI-84 Plus:  Basic Wheatstone Full Bridge Circuit

The program WHEATSTONE (HP Prime) and WHTSTONE (TI-84 Plus CE) deals with the full Wheatstone circuit:



Formulas

EA = E * (1 – R4/(R4 + R3))
EB = E * (1 – R1/(R1 + R2))
eO = EA – EB

Variables used:  A = R1, B = R2, C = R3, D = R4, L = EA, R = EB, O = eO

Resistance is measured in ohms (Ω), current in volts (V).

HP Prime Program WHEATSTONE

INPUT({A,B,C,D,E},
"Basic Wheatstone",
{"R1: ","R2: ","R3: ","R4: ",
"E: "});
L:=E*(1-D/(D+C));
R:=E*(1-A/(A+B));
O:=L-R;
PRINT();
PRINT("EA: "+L);
PRINT("EB: "+R);
PRINT("e0: "+O);
END;

Note:

I will be taking some time off from blogging in early May. I am going to work on a presentation that I hope to present in HHC 2017 this September (link: http://hhuc.us/2017/ ).  I encourage anyone to come attend the HHC conferences, they are a lot of fun.  This year the conference will be in Nashville.
