HP48GX units problem



#4

If on my HP48GX I do the following:

1000
Hz
1E-6
F
*
INV
¡ç
§Ù

I get 1000_§Ù

Where as the correct answer is:

(0,-159.154943092)_ §Ù

First, it¡¯s obvious the calculator has not made the conversion from Hz to radians/sec.

Next, if I type:

(0,2)
§Ù

I get an error message ¡°Bad Argument Type¡± so apparently the units cannot be appended to a complex number. But 1 / (1 Hz * 1 F) does NOT equal 1 §Ù
even if we neglect signs or complex numbers.

This might be worth a search through archives of comp.sys.hp48

#6

I see that the text was garbled when I posted it. I'll try editing it in and see if it will make more sense.

If on my HP48GX I do the following:

1000

Hz

1E-6

F

*

INV

I get:

1000_Ohm

(Ohm symbol does not post correctly)

Where as the correct answer is:

(0,-159.154943092)_Ohm

First, it's obvious the calculator has not made the conversion from Hz to radians/sec.

Next, if I type:

0,2)

Ohm

I get an error message, "Bad Argument Type", so apparently the units cannot be appended to a complex number. But 1 / (1 Hz * 1 F) does NOT equal 1 Ohm even if we neglect signs or complex numbers.

There, that makes a little more sense.
