### HP Prime: Free Fall with Air Friction

HP Prime:   Free Fall with Air Friction

Introduction

The program FALLS will calculate the position and velocity of an object falling with friction proportional to square of the object's speed.   The program is aimed towards large objects in free fall.  The half-increment method is used.

With the initial conditions:

y = 0  (initial position, assumed to be at zero)

g = gravitational constant

α = f/m  (force-mass ratio)

dy/dt = 0 (velocity, assume to be at rest from the beginning)

With Δt with the change of time:

dy/dt_1/2 = dy/dt_0 + C * Δt/2  where C = g - α * (dy/dt_0)^2

dy/dt_(i+1/2) = dy/dt_(i-1/2) + C * Δt where C =   g - α * (dy/dt_(i-1/2))^2

y_i+1 = y_i + dy/dt_(i+1/2) * Δt

l3:=CONCAT(l0,l1);

l4:=CONCAT(l3,l2);

m0:=list2mat(l4,SIZE(l0));

m0:=TRN(m0);

RETURN m0;

END;

The result is a matrix wit the columns:

Column 1:  time  (t = m)

Column 2:  velocity  (dy/dt = d)

Column 3:  position (y)

The program assumes that the object or person being dropped is well above the ground or floor.

Example

Go 10 steps with Δ = 0.25 sec, g = 9.80665 m/s^2, and α = 0.028

Velocity ≈ 18.6716 m/s

Position ≈ 76.1314 m

The program assumes that the object or person being dropped is well above the ground or floor.

### Retro Review: HP 75C

Retro Review:  HP 75C

It's Christmas Eve!

Quick Facts

Model:  HP 75C

Company:  Hewlett Packard

Years:  1982-1984

Type:  Scientific, BASIC Programmable

Display:  1 line, 32 characters

Original Price:  \$995

Memory:  16,000 bytes RAM with a slot for an 8K RAM Card

Other Ports:  3 ROM slots for applications

Hard Case which stores the HP 75 and the cards, but not the AC adapter

The HP 75C (and later HP 75D) has an 8-bit CPU microprocessor named the Capricorn.   The Capricorn microprocessors where featured in the HP 85 computer.

For fans of tropical astrology, this article is posted on December 24, under the sign of Capricorn.   ♑  The Capricorn processor was designed by a Steve Wozniak, a Leo.  But I digress.

Introduction

The HP 75C computer is a portable computer with an almost full sized QWERTY keyboard.  The 75C is a scrolling one-line display that can have up to 32 characters.  The keyboard works like a computer keyboard: the [SHIFT] key must be pressed and held to type capital letters.

The keyboard is nice to type and with the correct size of hands, touch typing can be accomplished.  It also has a numeric keypad that can be activated by holding down [CTL] while pressing [LOCK].   Pressing [LOCK] ends the numeric keypad mode.

[ 7 ]  returns 7

[ 8 ]  returns 8

[ 9 ]  returns 9

[ U ] returns 4

[ I ] returns 5

[ O ] returns 6

[ J ] returns 1

[ K ] returns 2

[ L ] returns 3

[ M ] returns 0

Other characters can be accessed by holding down the [CTL] key and pressing another key.   Example characters that can be typed this way are:

CTL + Space:  Δ

CTL + A:  °

CTL + D:  α

CTL + I:  σ

CTL + P:  θ

CTL + T:  π

CTL + plus key:  Σ

The keyboard also has an HP-IL port and a card reader.  The card reader is manual, requiring the user to pull the card at just the right speed to record programs.  Transferring programs to cards, which are long and skinny, takes a lot of patience.  Each card be pulled in two ways and each way can store a program up to only 650 bytes.   Every time a new program is stored in a track, that new program replaces the previous contents.

The battery is a rechargeable Ni-CAD battery.  If you purchase a HP 75C, I advise you to get one with a working AC plug.  According to the HP 75 Owner's Manual, it takes about 8 hours for the batteries to fully recharge.

How to turn the HP 75C on?   There is no ON key.   The [ATTN] (attention) key takes care of this.  To turn the 75C off, hold [SHIFT] and press [ATTN] or type bye then [RTN].

Modes

The HP 75C has three operating modes:

TIME: setting the computer's clock and time.  Thankfully the HP 75C is Y2K friendly and allows dates after 2000.

APPT:  set and check personal appointments.

EDIT:  the main mode of the HP 75C computer.  This is where all the basic programs are edited, stored, and ran.   The Edit mode can handle one line algebraic calculations, with the order of operations followed.

Programming

The HP 75C has BASIC programming language, although not as extensive as the HP 71B.  It's probably the one slight problem I have with the 75C, but missing functions can be programmed.   In tomorrow's post, I have a simple linear regression which the 75C's list of commands lack commands for.

What is included?  A short list includes:

*  square roots, modulus, sign, maximum, minimum, random numbers, remainder, integer part, fractional part

*  the constants PI, INF (9.99999999999E499), EPS (1E-499)

*  degree/radian angle conversions, trigonometric functions, angle (atan2), sec, sec, cot, logarithms (log10 and log (for ln, this is a computer language))

*  relational tests (evaluated to 0 for false or 1 for true), logic (and, or, exor (either or but not both), not)

*  strings, alarm settings, beep, read and data, goto and label, for-to-step structure, if-then-else structure, character, date and time strings, arrays

*  printing and user function commands

Remember, in programming the 75C, line numbers are required.

Like the HP 71B, I find it a joy to program the 75C.

The Updated HP 75D

The HP 75D was an updated HP 75C computer and produced in rare supply from 1984 to 1986.  The retail price of an HP 75D was \$1,095 and included a port for a  bar code wand. Yes, the same type of bar codes that you see on grocery products and you scan at the self checkout lines.

Final Thoughts

The HP 75C is not an inexpensive purchase.  If you buy one, please be sure you see pictures from the seller with the unit turned on.  In addition, at the very least, make sure it has working batteries and the AC adapter.   The going price for the HP 75C these days from at least \$250 US.

It is a worthwhile machine especially for fans of BASIC and a good companion to the HP 71B.   I am happy to have the 75C in my collection, which is years I missed out on winning one as a door prize.

### Review: Casio FC-200V 2nd Edition

Review:  Casio FC-200V 2nd Edition

Quick Facts

Model:  FC-200V 2nd Edition

Company:  Casio

Years:  October 2022 - present

Type:  Finance

Batteries:  Solar and Battery (1 LR44)

Memory: 7 memory registers

System:  Algebraic with Order of Operations

Contrast Setting

The Financial 2nd Edition

Ten years ago I reviewed the FC-200V "1st edition", which had the gold keyboard.  To be honest, I the cash flow problem I had was probably due to operator error (me).

The gold 1st edition was released in 2004 and 18 years later, we have the black 2nd edition.  The 2nd edition follows Casio updating the scientific calculators such as fx-115 ES, fx-300 ES, and fx-300 MS.  According to Casio, the redesign are more environmental friendly and more durable than their previous editions.

Like the fx-115 ES 2nd Edition, the keyboard FC-200V 2nd Edition feels responsive and looks clean.

The two rows of light gray keys features the worksheets and modes of the FC-200V:

SMPL:  Simple Interest

CPMD:  Compound Interest (Time Value of Money)

CASH:  Cash Flows

AMRT:  Amortization (of compound interest)

COMP:  Compute mode, main mode

STAT:  Statistics

CNVR:  APR/EFF Conversions

COST:  Cost/Sell/Profit Margin Solver

DAYS:  Days Between Dates and Date Calculation

DEPR:  Depreciation

BOND:  Bond Calculations

BEVN:  Breakeven Calculations

The sticker on the case lists all of variables used in the calculator, as well as how to set the contrast on the screen.

The available regressions are:

A+Bx:  Linear

ln X:  Logarithmic

e^X:  Exponential

A∙B^X:  Exponential (any base)

A∙X^B: Power

1/X:  Inverse

We can store up to 80 single data points, or 40 pairs of data points.  Turning STAT mode on in SETUP will give us access to the frequency column.  However this reduces the maximum number of data points to 40 and 26, respectively.

The types of depreciation models available are:

SL:  Straight Line

FP:  Fixed Percentage

SYD: Sum of the Year's Digits

DB:  Declining Balance

Some of the variables are shared with the time value of money variables:

n = life of the asset

I% = percentage or declining balance factor

PV = cost

FV = residual value or salvage value

The Cash Flow worksheet features the following calculations:

NPV:  net present value

IRR:  internal rate of return

PBP:  payback period

NFV:  net future value

Be aware that the data entry is shared with the statistics mode.   The first data point is still marked data point 1.  Data point 1 is the initial cash flow, typically labeled CF0 in most calculators.  I wish that the FC-200V had two separate lists in memory for cash flows and statistics to reduce confusion.  Turning STAT mode on in SETUP will allow for each point to have a frequency.

Switch between statistics and cash flow modes will clear the list of data points.   This is one of the few areas where data does not transfer between applications.

There is a FC-100V which is battery powered but does not have depreciation, bonds, and breakeven calculations.   The FC-100V 2nd Edition is currently available outside of the United States.

I think the FC-200V could have used a QR code command on the calculator like the fx-991 EX.  However, we get a QR code on the calculator's case which gives access to the user manual.

One of my favorite features is the ability to store two expressions through SHORT CUT 1 and SHORT CUT 2, and two functions with the FMEM1 and FMEM2.  FMEM1 and FMEM2 are the only way to assign access some of the functions such as rectangular/polar conversions, arcsine, arccosine, arctangent, factorial, and absolute value to the keyboard.

Variables

The FC-200V has seven variables independent of the financial variables: A, B, C, D, X, Y, and M.  M has the memory add (M+) and memory subtract (M-) that Casio has on scientific calculators.  We can enter variables with the ALPHA key.  However, the store key brings up a menu and this is the only way to store variables.

The Percent Key and the Percent Change Key

The percent key works like the percent function on scientific algebraic calculators, just dividing its argument by 100.  The percent key (Δ%) also had idiosyncrasies to it.  Just typing Δ% execute the function immediately.

To add y percent to x:  x + x * y% or x * (1 + y%)

To subtract y percent from x:  x - x * y% or x * (1 - y%)

To calculate percent change from x to y:  x - y Δ%

To calculate (y + x)/x * 100%:  x + y Δ%

To calculate sale price:   cost * profit margin Δ%

The manual makes a great reference, not only detailing the operations of the calculator, but also lists reference formulas.  You will have to find it online, as the calculator only gets quick start guides in English, Spanish, and French.

Final Thoughts

The FC-200V 2nd Edition is a feature rich financial calculator and its pretty easy to use, if you are willing to work with the idiosyncrasies.

### HP Prime: Constant Payment Applied to Principal

HP Prime:  Constant Payment Applied to Principal

Constant Amount Applied to Principal

In most loans and mortgages,  the amount of payment applying to interest and principal depends on the running balance.

This program assumes the customer wants an equal portion to apply to principal each payment.   As a result, the payment itself, principal and interest, will vary.  The simple algorithm to amortize this loan is this:

For K=1 to N:

Int =  Bal * I%÷100

Tpmt = Int + CPMT

Bal_k = Bal_(k-1) - CMPT

where:

Bal = balance of a loan

PV = loan amount

CPMT = amount to be applied to principal each payment

I% = interest rate

Int = interest calculated for payment K

Tpmt = total payment for payment K

HP Prime Program CPYMT

The result of CPYMT is a four column matrix with rows:  k, interest in payment k, total payment k, resulting balance.  Keep in mind that program asks for periodic interest rate.

EXPORT CPYMT()

BEGIN

// 2022-10-24 EWS

l3:=CONCAT(l3,l1);

l3:=CONCAT(l3,l2);

m:=list2mat(l3,SIZE(l0));

m:=TRN(m);

RETURN m;

END;

Example

Five year loan of \$10,000 where the customer requests an equal amount of principal to be applied each annual payment (\$2,000 a year).  The loan rate is 6.99%.

Inputs:

N = 5

I% = 6.99

PMT = 2,000.00

LOAN = 10,000.00

Result:

Year 1:  Interest:  \$699.00;  Total Payment:  \$2,699.00;  Balance:  \$8,000.00

Year 2:  Interest:  \$599.20;  Total Payment:  \$2,559.20;  Balance:  \$6,000.00

Year 3:  Interest:  \$419.40;  Total Payment:  \$2,419.40;  Balance:  \$4,000.00

Year 4:  Interest:  \$279.60;  Total Payment:  \$2,279.60;  Balance:  \$2,000.00

### HP 20S: Triac Waveforms

HP 20S:   Triac Waveforms

Introduction

The following calculations involve triode AC switches, better known as triacs.  A triac is generally used as a bidirectional power switch device.  James J. Davidson, the original author of the HP 25 programs states "these programs are for use with mean-absolute (also called average) responding voltmeters which are calibrated to read the rms value of a sine wave"  (Davidson, 38).

The variables used in Davidson's programs are:

Vs = root mean square from source

VLMS = root mean square voltage

θ = firing angle of triac in degrees (Davidson, 38)

### HP 32SII: Random Number Utilities

HP 32SII:  Random Number Utilities

Note:  The following programs should work with the original HP 32S.   The checksums listed are for the HP 32SII only.

HP 32SII Program:  Fill a Set of Registers with Increasing Integers

This program fills up the alpha registers with consecutive increasing integers.  Up to 25 slots are available, A- Y, with the lowest being stored in A.   Register Z is used to store the difference.

The difference from both numbers should not be more than 24.

F01  LBL F

F02  x<>y

F03  1

F04  -

F05 STO Z

F06 -

F07 STO i

I01  LBL I

I02  RCL i

I03  IP

I04  RCL+ Z

I05  STO(i)

I06  DSE i

I07  GTO I

I08  RTN

F:  10.5 bytes, 32SII checksum 9FB9

I:  12.0 bytes, 32SII checksum E189

Total:  22.5 bytes

Examples

18 to 27:   18 ENTER 27 XEQ F

Results:

A = 18, B = 19, C = 20, D = 21, E = 22,

F = 23, G = 24, H = 25, I = 26, J = 27

HP 32SII Program:  Pick from Registers A through Y

Enter the number of registers to pick from into register Z.  For example, if you have registers A through J loaded, store 10 into register Z.

Note:  When used for indirect addressing, the absolute value of integer of register i is used.   This will allows us to save a few steps.

G01  RANDOM

G02  RCL× Z

G03  1

G04  +

G05  STO i

G06  RCL(i)

G07  RTN

G:  12.0 bytes, 32SII checksum FE18

Example:

Use the data from the last problem.

10 STO Z,

XEQ G:   22

XEQ G:   21

(results will vary)

HP 32SII Program:  Uniform Distribution

This program picks random numbers between two parameters.

U01  LBL U

U02  STO C

U03  -

U04  STO D

W01  LBL W

W02  RANDOM

W03  RCL× D

W04  RCL+ C

W05  STOP

W06  GTO W

U:  6.0  bytes, 32SII checksum 8022

W: 9.0  bytes, 32SII checksum 88EE

Total:  15.0 bytes

Example:

Random numbers between -1 and 1:

XEQ U:  -0.74076 (press R/S for more random numbers)

0.28000

-0.80090

0.20653

0.50614

HP 32SII Program:  Gaussian Distribution of Random Numbers

Generate random numbers that fit on a normal distribution with mean M and deviation D.  Two random numbers are generated, press x<>y to see both results.

X01  LBL X

X02  INPUT M

X03  INPUT D

Y01  LBL Y

Y02  RANDOM

Y03  2

Y04  ×

Y05  π

Y06  ×

Y07  RANDOM

Y08  LN

Y09  -2

Y10  ×

Y11 SQRT

Y12  θ,r→y,x

Y13  RCL× D

Y14  RCL+ M

Y15  x<>y

Y16  RCL× D

Y17  RCL+ M

Y18  STOP

Y19  GTO Y

Example:

Mean = 3

Deviation: 1.5

XEQ X

M?  3 R/S

D?  1.5 R/S

1.70434 x<>y 2.89313 R/S

2.22287 x<>y 2.50113 R/S

1.67644 x<>y 2.87034 ...
