While there are many text boxes in the above hunting
calculator, almost everything is a readout and reference to you.
What do you enter? First in the middle center button select
metric or English system. For the rest of this, we will use
the English system as the reference and of course the metric example
would be similar.
You enter muzzle velocity in the upper left - for
English - either in the feet/sec text box or mph miles per hour text
box. Then hit enter. Then you will find that much of the
lower area on the left fills in. It gives examples for gravity
drop at a distance away and also tells about how many seconds to get
there. Of course this is just a first approximation and does
not take into account friction in the air or environmental
conditions, but likely should be a help.
The second item to enter, if you wish, is the
first item on the top left in the lower table. When it is not
filled in the box will say "Set?". Just put a number in there
for the actual number of yards you are shooting. Then the
right side fills in and tells you how much to lead the target at the
distance you just entered.
Can this be used for other things other than guns
and rifles? Of course. It really just give a
relationship between speed, time and the effects of gravity.
So a person could also use it for a baseball pitcher of course.
They just need to convert the 60 feet 6 inches to yards (just over
20) and enter it in the "set?" area to see how long it takes the
ball to cross the mound and also how much the ball falls and the
pitcher must compensate for. I will just say .... interesting.
Overall - Convert 2000 is a collection of Six Calculators
A computer calculator with some excellent features. It includes a
simulated paper tape readout on screen that shows calculations as you go -
and it can also print to a default printer. It also includes 10 memory locations
that are visible to help you remember which memory value is which.
Metric to English Calculator:
that includes conversions for: weight, distance, volume, temperature,
hexadecimal to ascii and decimal, and quality sigma to ppm
- Mortgage Loan Calculator:
that allows you to calculate any of the four items of: Principal
(amount of loan) , interest rate, term of loan, or payment amount by
entering the other three. An amortization schedule that also
allows save and print is included. Many options.
- Quality Calculator: Many
Handheld calculators will do statistics. This one does not. What
it does do is include many items not found on hand held calculators
including mtbf calculations, and the relationship between mtbf, mttr and
system availability. Also includes ppm to sigma calculations plus
fahrenheit to celsius conversion.
- Chinese Calendar Calculator:
This calculator is a simplistic approximation of the Chinese tradition of
naming years after animals and how it relates to our own Gregorian solar
calendar years. It is a simple approximation, and is mostly included
- Custom Calculator:
Allows 9 lines of programmable calculations. It does not include all
programmable functions, but includes many of the common ones such as
addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, %, logs, natural logs,
exponentiation, and more. It does not allow parenthesis but does allow
multi-line information transfer at least in a downward direction. This
can be set up for many common small business needs. Examples included
within the calculator.
- Cellular Calculator:
This might be primarily for those in the cellular
business. It can translate cellular serial number for small or large (two
types) of serial numbers between decimal or hexadecimal. And no, it is not
just a simple overall conversion.
- Odds Calculator: Gives three different sections on the screen that can help
calculate odds for some common items. The help screen for it also provides
examples and how to set up odds - something you might find both fun and
- Hunting Calculator: Provides some basic information for speed and gravity
for items thrown or shot. As soon as an item is thrown or shot, gravity
causes it to fall. How much do you need to compensate for? If skeet
shooting at a moving target, how much to lead it?
Overall - Of course, with differences in definitions and rounding
techniques, you will need to check settings and ensure suitability of these
calculators for your own needs. However, this software can be an
exceptional help when you need it and it comes at a very low package price.
Switch from one calculator to another by simply clicking on the calculator you
wish on the pull-down menu that it is on each main calculator screen. An
option file can remember your settings if you wish it to be saved. Load
and save of multiple options is also provided for.
