If you mean using the "EE" key it's straightforward.

To enter scientific numbers, enter the number, then press EE, then the exponent value. The TI-30XA will stay in scientific display until you "clear" or turn it off. It will also switch to scientific notation if you multiply big numbers that exceed the display.

E.g. Input 3, EE, 10, X, 3, EE, 10, =, gives you the answer 9 times 10 to the power 20. Press the "square root" key and you will get back 3 times 10 to the power 10.

You can mix entries too, e.g. 3, EE, 10, X, 2, =, gives you 6 times 10 the power 10....

Sorry to disappoint you but this calculator does not do windows. The operation you require is truly basic so as to be done by hand. It will be simpler for you if you tried to understand the scientific notation.

You may want to take it apart and then clean the contacts below the keys with isopropyl alcohol and finally scratch a bit with a pencil No. 2. That should do the trick

One solution that you might try is to put the scientific numbers in parentheses. For instance open parenthesis, type in the first scientific notation then close parenthesis, next hit the divide key and then open parenthesis and type in the 2nd number in scientific that you are dividing by and then close parenthesis. Hit enter or =. I'm not sure if this will fix your problem, but it is worth a try.

You will need to send the data using ZPL or the printer won't recognize it , if you don't have experience in this area print through the Zebra Print Driver should work. In your application use Barcode 128 as the font and see how it goes

Hoe do you use logarithm on TI-36X SOLAR?


Basically you first have to put your answer into scientific notation by pressing the 3rd key then the 6 key. The screen display should change to one big zero and two small zeros.

I was workinggon the same problem with a -log of a chemistry problem to get pH and I knew the answer because I calculated it on it TI-85, but we are not allowed to use graphing calulators on the exam (:-((() so I had to figure out how to do it on this one!

For example, I had pH =-log(2.828947x10^4)

On the TI-36X you change to scientific notation using the instructions above. Once the three zeros enter on the screen:
[4]
[-]
[2nd]
[10^x]

1^-04 should appear on screen, then you multiply by 2.828947

[x]
[2][.][828947]
then your screen will show the answer in scientific notation.

2.828947 in big numbers and in small numbers -04
From there you simply press:
[log]
and your answer will show up as a negative number. Just take the absolute value of that and you have your answer. Took me like 30 minutes the night before a huge chemistry exam to figure that out! Hope it helps someone!

Inputing scientific notation into my calculator


Hello,

1. To convert a number to scientific equation, use [2nd][Sci]
Exemples 12345 [=] screen shows 12345 Then [2nd][Sci] coverts it to 1.2345 ^04 to the power 4.
2. To enter directly a number in scientific notation (e.g. -1.2345 X10^(-65) a very small number) you use the [EE] key 1.2345[+ /-][EE][+/-]65 shows as -1.2345 -65
1.6X10^(-19) 1.6[EE][+/-]19 shows as 1.6 -19

Hope it helps
