Instructions for Using ASA Flight Computer Your ASA E6-B Flight Computer has two main parts: a circular slide rule side for making quick calculations, and a wind side for computing ground speed and wind correction angle. The slide portion of the circular slide rule side also includes quick-reference material. Figure 1. planimeters, books, and manuals. Slide Rule Universe is a very large dealer, operated by Walter Shawlee in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. His website is the largest slide rule site on the internet and contains a vast amount of slide rule information.

A slide rule, one of the last vestiges of geek nerddom in the fifties and sixties, is a remarkable invention. Unfortunately, having been replaced by the electronic calculator, the slide rule has fallen into disuse, which is a shame because it is an excellent conceptual tool for visualizing how to do computations with logarithmic numbers. 1By putting special scales on a slide rule, these and certain other operations much more diﬃcult than those shown in the above table can be done easily. 3. Figure2:Needacaption. Figure3:Needacaption. 3In using this rule, “ﬁrst” is to be counted from the left;.

How to use and operate most slide rule functions. By using this book you get a whole new perspective on this wonderful tool. Read more. 2 people found this helpful. Helpful. Comment Report abuse. mike lovell. out of 5 stars Five Stars. Reviewed in the United States on October 3, /5(11).

A couple provide templates to download for making your own slide rules. Here is how slide rules work for multiplying and dividing. Each number has a logarithm.

To multiply two numbers, add their logarithms and find the anti-logarithm of the sum. Division involves subtraction of one logarithm from the other.

A slide rule represents logarithms as. Additionally, The slide rule does not tell you where the decimal point is located in the answer. To do a calculation with a slide rule you reduce all numbers to scientific notation with digits then use the slide rule to perform the basic operations.

In a separate calculation you find the order Using a slide rule book magnitude by combining the powers of 15 rows The Slide Rule The book, written by Florian Cajori, is the standard work on the early history. A slide rule is a multi-purpose calculator tool.

It’s what people used to do math in the days before calculators and now ever-present phones and computers. The metal "window" is inserted over the slide rule to act as a place holder.

A cursor is fixed in the center of the "window" to allow for accurate readings. The scales (A-D) are labeled on the left-hand side of the slide rule.

The number of scales on a slide rule vary depending on the number of mathematical functions the slide rule can perform. The author had founded the Unique Slide Rule Company in The book was published inthe year of his death.

The company was subsequently managed by his son. Given the provenance of the author, it is not surprising that the book concentrates on Unique slide rules. Nowadays, slide rules are following the ﬁrst model setup by A me´de´e Mannheim, a French artillery ofﬁcer under Napole´on, who labelled the f our scales of his rule by the ﬁrst four letters of the alphabet: A, B, C and D (ﬁgure 5).

The t wo logarithmic scales, being situated below, are thus using. This manual was intended for use with the Mannheim type slide rules such as models, and The Use of the SLIDE RULE - Allan R. Cullimore, - This is a hard bound text on the use of the slide rule and only specifically mentions the Mannheim type rules.

The book was published by K&E. In his second book, Joint Slide Rules: Sectors, 2-foot 2-fold and similar slide rules, expert Peter M. Hopp examines the joint rule, completing an important but neglected part of slide rule history.

The book is a comprehensive account of joint rules and contains detailed information on over two hundred joint slide rule makers from around the world. How to Use a Slide Rule Description The citation information for this eighteen-page booklet is: How to Use a Slide Rule (Chicago: Eugene Dietzgen Co., ).

After a description of the features of the slide rules sold by Dietzgen, the booklet gives a tour of the slide rule for beginners. The slide rule did not indicate the decimal point. That was done by the user - typically by estimation, "common sense" or by computing the characteristic.

For example: Picture of x = on a K&E 20" rule (~40K) Here the result is 7 - estimation of 10x40 and 20x40 makes it. The book covers the very basics of using slide rule. If you know how to multiply and divide and want to get in to how to use log logs get another book.

Has an excellent discussion of the factors limiting slide rule precision, although erroneously referred to as "accuracy" throughout the book. This manual is missing P however this section of the manual is identical with the How to Use Log Log Slide Rules and the missing page from that manual is here: pickn4pzip - KB (, bytes) Pickett - How to Use Log Log Slide Rules.

The power of a slide rule stems from the interplay of the scales and the movements of the slide and the cursor. However, even if your slide was lined up with the scales on the body, but otherwise frozen in place, you could use your slide rule as a lookup table for a large number of formulas.

Some of them are listed in Tables 2 and 3. All slide rules consist of logarithmic scales that can be moved in relation to each other in order to do basic mathematical calculations. The simplest slide rule would have two log scales that you could use to do multiplication and division (see my Slide Rule Introduction page for more info).

One of the influential figures in slide rule design, Amédée Mannheim, created a standard slide rule. How are mechanical calculators, slide rules, used in. Aviation safety is the most compelling use of slide rules in E6B circular calculators are an internationally required manual backup for aircraft avionics systems which can fail during an emergency.
