Introduction to Calchemy
The best way to get to know about Calchemy is to look through a few
examples and then try some problems yourself...
Here are some examples...
And some info about how to use UNCALC...
- Calchemy works only with quantity equations.
if you include unit conversion factors like the ones you may find in
numeric equations, Calchemy will produce an incorrect result!
- Be sure you enter all the dimensionless parameters of an equation, like pi
or (4/3) correctly! Because these parameters are dimensionless,
Calchemy is unable to determine if they are required, and cannot provide error detection for them.
- When in Doubt, use parenthesis. Note that 2 ft^2 is NOT the same
as (2 ft)^2 and 1/2 ft is not the same as (1/2) ft.
- If it's important, ALWAYS CHECK YOUR RESULTS.
