There are already a couple of tutorials posted at Instructables on using a slide. The slide rule, also known colloquially in the United States as a slipstick, is a mechanical analog computer. As graphical analog calculators, slide rules are closely related to nomograms, but the former are used for general calculations, whereas the latter are used for application-specific computations.

The slide rule is used primarily for multiplication and division, and also for functions. The middle part of the slide rule is mobile. You move it around mainly when you want to perform multiplication/division.

It works because one of the scales is linear, the other logarithmic. and as I hope we all know: log(ab)=log(a)+log(b) log(a/b)=log(a)-log(b) Note that in this photo, the slide has been moved so that "1" on the center scale is lined up with "2" on the bottom scale.

The book itself came with the original slide rule, but this book was in such excellent condition that the spine cracked when he opened it. I don't think it had ever been opened.

A great purchase.5/5(9). The slide rule was twice as accurate as a normal one of the same length, as it had a "folded scale" so that it effectively was twice as long as the physical length. The great thing about a slide rule is it teaches you to do order of magnitude calculations in your head, so.

The slide rule, also known as a slipstick, is a mechanical analog slide rule is used primarily for multiplication and division, and also for "scientific" functions such as roots, logarithms and trigonometry, but does not generally perform addition or subtraction.

There are many different styles of slide rules. Generally, they are either have a linear form or that of a circle. COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.The slide rule, or slipstick, is a mechanical analog slide rule is used mainly for multiplication and division, and also for "scientific" functions such as roots, logarithms and trigonometry, but usually not for addition or subtraction.

They have a standardised set of markings (called scales).A, B: two-decade logarithmic scales, used for finding square roots and squares of numbers.A slide rule is a mechanical device that uses the alignment of numeric values marked on sliding scales to perform mathematical calculations.

For the past years, the calculations performed on slide rules have made possible such feats as designing the first skyscraper and putting a man on the moon.
