Entering Scientific Formulas

Entering Scientific Formulas

I have developed this technique to use when I program long formulas. First, I declare descriptive variables for the mathematical elements. I prototype the formula using the digit “1” as a place holder for the variables. This allows me to review the structure of the formula and make sure it compiles. I keep a copy of the formula as an inline comment.I replace the place holders with the variable by using cut and paste. This is an example that calculates the volume of a cap of a sphere:

 Public Const PI = 3.141592653589Dim CapVolume As SingleDim SphereRadius As SingleDim CapHeight As Single'Sample valuesSphereRadius = 9.35CapHeight = 3.33'Formula as prototype which is left in 'the code for the volume of the cap of a sphere'CapVolume = PI * 1 * 1 * (3 * 1 - 1) / 3CapVolume = PI * CapHeight * CapHeight _	* (3 * SphereRadius - CapHeight) / 3'Reality checkDebug.Print CapVolume

What is Metadata?

What is metadata? Well, It’s an odd concept to wrap your head around. Metadata is essentially the secondary layer of data that tracks details about the “regular” data. The regular
