Full Version: Programs for HP-48S
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

Where can I find triangle solve and finding complex roots of polynomials programs for an HP-48S? I will need to manually input the programs since I do not have a serial cable.

Try here: http://www.hpcalc.org/ .

Cheers,

Michael

I have a few small programs:

QD: (Quadratic Formula) - Credit goes to the document "1 Minute Marvels" by Wldoek Mier-Jedrzejowicz and Richard Nelson (They have this program named 'quad')

Input:

3: A

2: B

1: C

Output:

2: root 1

1: root 2

<< 3 PICK / SWAP ROT -2 * / DUP SQ ROT - SQRT + LASTARG - >>

SQRT: Square Root

Law of Sines:

sin(F1)/S1 = sin(F2)/S2. Apply this to any of the two sides and their corresponding angels. F represents theta which can be typed by pressing [alpha] [right shift] (F). (48S only?)

LAWSIN:

Law of Cosines:

A^2=B^2+C^2-2BC cos F

LAWCOS:

30 MENU brings up the calculator's solver using whatever is stored in STEQ.

Hope this helps,

Eddie

Thank you. It does help. I went into HPCalc.org. Most of the programs are for download. Very few were text only which is what I needed.

Very cool. I finally got the cubic formula done, CU, which requires QD (see above).
