Slide Rule 描述
Show off your geek cred with your very own virtual slide rule!
Ever heard of a slipstick? Or, more appropriately, a slide rule?! What the heck is that? Before scientists, mathematicians, and engineers had fancy calculators, they had to rely on the slide rule for their rapid number crunching.
Thanks to the AWESOME POWER of logarithmic scales a slide rule gives you several computational features using your very own virtual, mechanical computer. With this slide rule, you can: multiply and divide, multiply chains of numbers, find reciprocals, determine squares / square roots / cubes / cube roots, base-10 logarithms, and sines / cosines / tangents / cotangents.
Contains support for both phone and tablet devices. Provides ANIMATED built-in help for maximizing your slide rule usage.
This app will definitely help establish your nerd-cred.
