Question about Texas Instruments TI-30 XIIS Calculator

Change to a different angular mode. Press the DRG key, use the left/right arrow to select the desired mode, then press ENTER twice.

Be aware that whatever angular mode you select, the display will show either "DEG", "RAD", or "GRAD" to indicate the mode.

Why would you want to remove it? If you are not doing trigonometric calculations it will not affect any results. It is just a reminder that the angle unit is set to degrees. Change it to radians or gradians, and the DEG will be replaced by RAD or GRAD.

Is there a button marked DEG->? That is the standard calculator button used to change mode. It could possibly be the shift function of another button.

I am not exactly sure what the 14.4 m distance represents: The horizontal part or the inclined one.

A. If the 14.4m is the length of the horizontal leg, then the height is given by tan(3 deg)=h/14.4m or h=14.4m*tan(3 deg) =0.75467 m.

B. However if 14.4 m is the length of the inclined part (the hypotenuse) of the triangle, then the height is given by

sin(3 deg)= h/14.4m or h=14.4 m *sin(3 deg)= 0.75363 m

As you can see, the values are approximately equal, because for angles less than 10 deg, the sine and tangent are approximately equal.

I am no construction engineer, but it seems to me that a 3 deg pitch in not much of an inclination. Maybe you meant 30 degree pitch.

If that be the case, the calculations are performed the same way as above: Just substitute 30 deg for 3 deg.

The DEG indicator has absolutely nothing to do with division, fraction or other operations. It is relevant only when you are calculating trigonometric functions (Sine, Cosine Tangent and their inverse functions.)

When you are calculating trigonometric functions the results depend on the angle unit the calculator is configured for

DEG >> angle values are in degrees.

RAD>> angle value are in radians

From the equivalence 180 deg =Pi radians you get

1 rad= 180deg/Pi=180 deg/3.14..=57.29577951 degrees.

The DEG indicator merely reminds you that angles are in DEG. If you change the unit to RADians the RAD indicator will be displayed instread.

You have a key, the label of which is the degree sign, the apostrophe
and the double quotation mark. It is located between the change sign
key (-) and the [HYP] key.

To enter an angle with degrees, minutes and seconds you use the key to separate between numbers

Ex: 18 deg 0' 45" you press 18 [Deg ' "] 0 [Deg ' "]45 [Deg ' "] [=] As you type the calculator displays 18 deg 0 deg 45 deg but the result will show correctly. You have to press the key after the seconds figure, otherwise you get a syntax error.

While the foregoing result is still in answer memory, if you press the [Deg ' "] key the result will be displayed in decimal degrees.

The key is used to enter the DMS values and also to toggle between DMS and D.D.

Sorry to say it but the DMS key is to convert between Degrees, minutes, seconds and decimal degrees (angle units). This cleared here is how to use the DMS key on this calculator.

Label of key [deg symbol ' "]. It is between [(-)] and [hyp]

To enter a value in decimal degrees

12.58 [deg ' "] [=] Screen displays 12.58 deg on top line and 12 deg 34' 48" on bottom line.

Pressing the [deg ' "] key while this value is displayed will show 12.58

To enter a DMS value:

Press the [deg ' "] key after each number even if one of the numbers D,M,S is nill (0).

Exemple Enter 25 deg 0 ' 48"

25 [deg ' "] 0 [deg ' "] 48 [deg ' "] [=]

Screen displays 25 deg 0' 48" on bottom line

Pressing the [deg ' "] key converts this result to decimal degrees 25.013

Hi,

Maybe some of your answers are wrong, but I can assure you that it has nothing to do with the poor deg indicator sitting on the top of your screen.

The indicator is there to remind you that the angle unit is set to degree, meaning any number you feed a trigonometric function is considered to be in degrees, and that any value calculated by an inverse trigonometric function is in degrees.

If you prefer to work in radians or in grads, all you have to do is change the settings of the calculator.

To change angle unit:

Press [SHIFT][MODE] and choose

I suggest you look at the manual that shipped with your calculator. Lookk for exemples of the calculation you want. Make a note of the exemple numbers and check the appendix for the particular exemple. The appendix will show you all the key strokes.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello,

When you turrn calculator ON the angle unit is reset to Degree and the DEG indicator is displayed. I do not know what the L is for, but you can get rid of the DEG indicator during calculator operation only if you change angle unit to RADians or GRAdes. However it will be replaced by the indicator for the new angle unit. After the power down, the unit will be back to the default DEG. What can you do about that?

Hope it helps.
