Speaking of spaghetti code... "

Just kidding - BASIC limits choice in this regard.

Although it can be done...

Conversions, 1-4-19

I thought it would be nice to have a package of my own frequently used conversions. The layout 'mi>km', miles to kilometers, made sense to me. The number 1.6093 multiplied by miles should yield kilometers. Enter your own conversions and multiplier beginning at 7000 in the DATA statements. I included some conversions I frequently use. Use multipliers with more digits for more accurate results.

For conversions using a formula like 'f>c', fahrenheit to celsius, enter the conversion then a -1 for the number multiplier. This will send the program to the 7900s where you can work the equation. Follow the programming example that's there. Keep all conversions with a number multiplier between 7000 and 7399 (above the -1s).

The 'ans' variable on the display will contain the answer. You can use it to seed another input. If you type the program in, make sure it's all working properly. On line 7490 make sure you type 'end..,..' (end, two periods, comma, two periods).

Entering 'conv' for a conversion will list the conversions. Entering 'conv#' will list the conversions plus the conversion multiplier. Compare all conversions to known results before using.

(I'm no programmer but if you have the red sauce I have the code

Code:
```7000 DATA mi>km,1.6093,km>mi,0.6214
7010 DATA yd>m,0.9144,m>yd,1.0936
7020 DATA ft>m,0.3048,m>ft,3.2808

7490 DATA end..,..

7500 PRINT "Conversion":PAUSE .8:A9\$="":B9=0:RESTORE 7000

7512 IF Z9\$="conv"OR Z9\$="conv#"THEN C9=0:GOTO 7800
7518 PRINT C9;"num ";:ACCEPT NULL(C9),C9
7525 IF B9=-1THEN 7900
7530 IF A9\$=Z9\$THEN 7570
7550 GOTO 7520

7570 ANS=C9*B9
7580 PRINT "ans";C9;A9\$;" =";ANS:PAUSE:GOTO 7500

7800 RESTORE 7000
7810 READ A9\$,B9\$:IF Z9\$="conv"THEN PRINT A9\$:PAUSE

7820 IF A9\$="end.."THEN 7500 ELSE 7810
7830 GOTO 7500

7900 IF Z9\$="c>f"THEN ANS=(C9*(9/5))+32:A9\$=Z9\$:GOTO 7580
7910 IF Z9\$="f>c"THEN ANS=(C9-32)*(5/9):A9\$=Z9\$:GOTO 7580

7990 A9\$="end..":GOTO 7540```

Example:

conv lbs>kgs [enter]
0 num 210 [enter]
ans 210 lbs>kgs = 95.256

[enter]
lbs>kgs conv [enter]
210 num 300 [enter]
ans 300 lbs>kgs = 136.08

[enter]
lbs>kgs conv kgs>lbs [enter]
300 num 136.08 [enter]
ans 136.08 kgs>lbs = 300.001968

Wind Chill, 1-25-19

Sometimes the weather report doesn't give the wind chill. Sometimes my local weather conditions differ from the weather report. When it's really cold outside I like to know the wind chill. I went online and found math for wind chill and made this for the TI-74. It seems to yield similar results as weather forecasts. Check it out.

Code:
```600 PRINT "Wind Chill":PAUSE .6
610 PRINT TEMP;"temp,deg f ";:ACCEPT NULL(TEMP),TEMP
620 PRINT WSPED;"wind speed,mph ";:ACCEPT NULL(WSPED),WSPED
630 WCHIL=35.74+(.6215*TEMP)-(35.75*WSPED^.16)+(.4275*TEMP*WSPED^.16)
640 ANS=WCHIL:PRINT USING"ans wind chill,deg f=###.#";WCHIL:PAUSE:GOTO 600```

Example:

0 temp,deg f -5 [enter]
0 wind speed,mph 13 [enter]
ans wind chill,deg f=-24.5

-5 temp,deg f 13 [enter]
13 wind speed,mph 5 [enter]
ans wind chill,degf= 4.8

A few years ago, I wrote a crappy program to calculate prime numbers. Every once in a while, at social gatherings, I'd pull out the TI-74 and announce that whatever number on the screen is a prime number.

Simpson's Rule, 3-2-19

I found this website that calculated the volume of an American football with a definite integral.

https://www.math.ucdavis.edu/~morris/16B/sec5.7.pdf

As I've said before, I'm no programmer and I'm poor at math. But I wanted to see if I could work a definite integral on my TI-74. I found Simpson's Rule which is supposed to work a definite integral. I programmed Simpson's Rule on my 74. I put the definite integral on line 8100. It seems to work okay....at least it gave the results of their football example.

Code:
```8000 PRINT "Simpson's Rule":PAUSE 1:Z=0:V=1:Y=0
8005 PRINT "Def.Integral..line 8100":PAUSE 1
8010 PRINT A;"start ";:ACCEPT NULL(A),A
8020 PRINT B;"end ";:ACCEPT NULL(B),B
8030 PRINT C;"step ";:ACCEPT NULL(C),C
8040 D=(B-A)/C:X=A-D
8045 IF (C/2)-INT(C/2)>0 THEN PRINT "..step even #s only":PAUSE :GOTO 8030
8050 X=X+D:IF X>B THEN 8130
8060 IF X=B THEN V=1
8070 IF V=1 THEN 8100
8080 IF V=2 THEN V=4:GOTO 8100
8090 IF V=4 THEN V=2

8100 Y=((-.0944*X^2)+3.4)^2*PI

8105 PRINT "x=";X;" y=";Y
8110 Y=Y*V:IF V=1 THEN V=2
8120 Z=Z+Y:GOTO 8050
8130 F=(Z*D)/3
8140 ANS=F:PRINT "ans=";F:PAUSE:GOTO 8000```

Football example:

0 start -5.5 [enter]
0 end 5.5 [enter]
0 step 20 [enter]

ans= 232.1679769 in3 - football volume (cubic inches)

(delete line 8105 if you don't want to see X and Y on the display)

6. Of course that's assuming it's not the New England Patriots footballs!

Calories Burned Cycling, 4-3-19

Now that the weather's warmer, I'm back on my bicycle. If I didn't ride my bicycle I'd probably not excercise at all. I vary my ride frequently and often wonder how many calories a given ride burns. I found this Calories Burned Cycling calculator online:

https://captaincalculator.com/health...ng-calculator/

It seems to work good. I decided to write a program for my Ti-74 using their math and info. The Ti-74 yields results pretty close to the example given. Checkout the website for more detailed information with an explanation and examples of MET. I did include some of their MET values I thought were pertinent.

Code:
```1400 DATA met number is the..
1402 DATA metabolic equivalent of task
1405 DATA leisure 5.5 mph = 3.5 met
1410 DATA leisure 9.4 mph = 5.8 met
1420 DATA bicycling general = 7.5 met
1430 DATA mountain general = 8.5 met
1440 DATA fast 14-15.9 mph = 10 met
1450 DATA racing 16-19 mph = 12 met
1490 DATA end

1500 PRINT "Calories Burned Cycling":PAUSE .8:A7\$="":RESTORE 1400
1510 PRINT W;"your weight ";:ACCEPT NULL(W),W
1520 PRINT CW\$;" (l)bs or (k)gs ";:ACCEPT NULL(CW\$),CW\$
1530 IF CW\$="l"THEN WT=W*0.45359237:GOTO 1560
1540 IF CW\$="k"THEN 1560
1550 GOTO 1520

1560 PRINT MT\$;" (m)et or (v)iew ";:ACCEPT NULL(MT\$),MT\$
1570 IF MT\$="v"THEN 1600 ELSE 1590
1580 GOTO 1560
1590 PRINT MET;"met ";:ACCEPT NULL(MET),MET:GOTO 1630

1610 IF A7\$="end"THEN RESTORE 1400:GOTO 1560
1615 PRINT A7\$:PAUSE
1620 GOTO 1600

1630 PRINT MIN;"ride mins ";:ACCEPT NULL(MIN),MIN
1640 ANS=((MET*WT*3.5)/200)*MIN
1650 PRINT USING"ans calories burned ####.#";ANS:PAUSE:GOTO 1500```

Example:

(l)bs or (k)gs l [enter] -- pounds or kilograms
(m)et or (v)iew m [enter] -- to enter or view met value
0 met 5.8 [enter] -- met number from list
0 ride mins 80 [enter] -- total minutes of bike ride

ans calories burned 589.3

l (l)bs or (k)gs k [enter]
m (m)et or (v)iew [enter]
5.8 met [enter]
80 ride mins [enter]

ans calories burned 589.3

Calories Burned Cycling, corrections, 4-4-19

I found some errors. Change:

1540 IF CW\$="k"THEN WT=W:GOTO 1560

1570 IF MT\$="v"THEN 1600
1575 IF MT\$="m"THEN 1590

The Kgs example result: 590.5

If I find anymore, I'll let you know. Like I've said, I'm no programmer.
