Tutoring physics, you face unit conversions. The tutor shows how the Casio fx-991ES PLUS C can be used.
Inside the cover of the Casio fx-991ES PLUS C, at the bottom, is a list of unit conversions. Specifically, it indexes each conversion with a number to which the calculator refers. You’ll see, for instance,
which means that 29, entered within the conversion context, performs horsepower to kW.
Example: Using the Casio fx-991ES PLUS C, convert 296 hp to kW.
- I use COMP mode for this calculation: key in MODE 1
- Key in 296 SHIFT 8
- The calculator will ask for the conversion number: in this case, key in 29.
- Press =
Btw: for kW to hp, it’s 30 instead of 29:)
