**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

**Solar Irradiance**

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

D = solar
irradiance

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°

Sun’s Irradiance:

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)

**Comments**

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.
