Nickzom Calculator Calculates Maximum Height of a Projectile

According to SoftSchools.com,

A projectile is an object that is given an initial velocity, and is acted on by gravity. The maximum height of the object is the highest vertical position along its trajectory. The maximum height of the projectile depends on the initial velocity v0, the launch angle θ, and the acceleration due to gravity. The unit of maximum height is meters (m).

Nickzom Calculator calculates the maximum height of a projectile given the accurate values for the required parameters. The required parameters to get the answer to maximum height are:

  • Acceleration due to Gravity
  • Initial Velocity
  • Angle of Projection

Let’s get started, first and foremost, proceed to the home page of the app, select Physics and click on Open Section.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Calculators

The technology is booming, and modern innovations and technology has changed our lives. There is a huge debate in our society, whether students should be allowed to use a calculator from such a young age. The advantages are balanced by the disadvantages. The debate has both positive and negative sides.

Advantages of Calculator

This technology allows students solve complicated problems quickly and in an efficient manner. Additionally, it can reduce the problem to simpler tasks and allows the student to devote more time in understanding the problem. Secondly, they are saved from monotonous calculations and the same boring mundane procedure.

The above advantages help students to avoid boredom, and it does not demoralize their mathematical understanding. If mathematics is not made entertaining, pupils can feel bored, and it can demoralize their mathematical understanding.

Nickzom Calculator Calculates the Capacitive Reactance of a Simple AC Circuit

According to Electronics Tutorials,

Capacitors that are connected to a sinusoidal supply produce reactance from the effects of supply frequency and capacitor size.

The capacitive reactance of the capacitor decreases as the frequency across it increases therefore capacitive reactance is inversely proportional to frequency.

The opposition to current flow, the electrostatic charge on the plates (its AC capacitance value) remains constant as it becomes easier for the capacitor to fully absorb the change in charge on its plates during each half cycle.

In Physics, Nickzom Calculator solves a whole lot of calculations and thereby relieves the stress on scientists. One of those calculations is on Simple AC Circuit

Today, I am sharing with you how you can find answers to computations on Capacitive Reactance.

First and Foremost, Proceed to the Calculator Map, then scroll to the Physics section and click on Simple A.C. Circuit.

Now, click on Capacitive Reactance

An activity or page is displayed for you to enter the required parameters to compute the capacitive reactance which are:

  • Frequency
  • Capacitance

The Effect of Calculators in a Professional Workplace

As a Professional, be it in Mathematics, Engineering, Medicine, Physics or any other career path, there is indeed the need to use various tools or technology in your field to achieve high end results. Sometimes these technologies are seen to produce positive results. Other times, it seems to have adverse effects

When dealing with advanced Mathematical problems, or trying to prove mathematical theorems, lots of research work, mundane steps, and records of theses findings, must be put into consideration. For example a mathematician or physicist will have to understand some programming languages, like python, Matlab etc. to compute equations and generate graphical representation to back up proof of their findings, experiments or research work, in a means to describe in terms of numbers and figures for example, the rate at which an action occurs (like the force of gravity pulling a falling stone at 9.8m/sec^2). It might also be required as a guide in helping publish a professional work or findings to other professionals in the field.

Nickzom Calculator Converts Units of Typography

According to Wikipedia,

Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language legiblereadable, and appealing when displayed. The arrangement of type involves selecting typefacespoint sizesline lengths, line-spacing (leading), and letter-spacing (tracking), and adjusting the space between pairs of letters (kerning). The term typography is also applied to the style, arrangement, and appearance of the letters, numbers, and symbols created by the process. Type design is a closely related craft, sometimes considered part of typography; most typographers do not design typefaces, and some type designers do not consider themselves typographers. Typography also may be used as a decorative device, unrelated to communication of information.

There are various units of typography. Nickzom Calculator converts the following units.

  • Twip

Nickzom Calculator Solves for Lowest Common Multiples and Highest Common Factor in Pre Algebra

According to Wikipedia,

In arithmetic and number theory, the least common multiplelowest common multiple, or smallest common multiple of two integers a and b, usually denoted by LCM(ab), is the smallest positive integer that is divisible by both a and b.] Since division of integers by zero is undefined, this definition has meaning only if a and b are both different from zero. However, some authors define LCM (a,0) as 0 for all a, which is the result of taking the LCM to be the least upper bound in the lattice of divisibility.

The LCM is the “lowest common denominator” (LCD) that can be used before fractions can be added, subtracted or compared. The LCM of more than two integers is also well-defined: it is the smallest positive integer that is divisible by each of them.

According to Math is Fun,

The highest common factor or greatest common divisor is the highest number that divides exactly into two or more numbers. It is the “greatest” thing for simplifying fractions!

Nickzom Calculator is capable of computing for a small or large range of numbers in determining the lowest common multiple or highest common factor

When it comes to lowest common multiple, popularly known as LCM for a range of numbers, it takes the multiples of all the numbers that can divide the range of numbers till the range of numbers are all 1.

When it comes to the highest common factor, popularly known as HCF or GCD, it takes the multiple of the numbers that can only divide through all the ranges of numbers simultaneously.
