A fine example of a vintage Otis King cylindrical slide rule calculator complete with its box, instructions and original leather case. This is a type C, model 'K' serial no W, with very clean & legible helical scales enabling numerous mathematical calculations, all detailed in .   The typical engineer's slide rule had scales 10" (25 cm) in length, making the slide rule about 12" overall, and /4" to 2" wide. A duplex slide rule had scales on both sides, the usual case for engineering slide rules. Angle divisions were originally in minutes, but decimal divisions gradually became predominant, in decitrig slide rules.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, several circular slide rules were made to resemble pocket watches. Fowler & Co., of Manchester, England, was a particularly notable manufacturer of this type of slide rule. The company was in business from to and made a large variety of calculators, although the labor-intensive nature of its manufacturing process produced expensive. Slide Rule Universe is a very large dealer, operated by Walter Shawlee in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. His website is the largest slide rule site on the internet and contains a vast amount of slide rule information. Slide Rule Trading Co. has new in box Hemmi rules for sale and specializes.

The Stanford University Libraries, Department of Special Collections, is pleased to announce the exhibition The Rise and Fall of the Slide Rule: Years of Mathematical Calculators. This exhibition illustrates the history of the slide rule, from its use as a tool to calculate logarithms in the seventeenth century, through its demise in the s and s with the invention of the electronic. If you were a math or science student born before , you most likely performed math using a slide rule instead of a calculator or computer. By , pocket calculators largely replaced the slide rule. The slide rule was invented around –, shortly after John Napier's publication of the concept of .

The invention of logarithms in by the Scottish mathematician John Napier and the computation and publication of tables of logarithms made it possible to effect multiplication and division by the simpler operations of addition and subtraction.

Slide RulesThe principle behind a slide rule is straightforward.

Two bars, each marked with scales, slide next to each other. Aligning numbers on different kinds of scales allows different calculations, such as multiplication or trigonometry.

Accuracy, however, is limited and depends on the user’s ed in the s, slide rules were widely used through the 20th century. Fabric weight calculation is one of the most important factors to know for all the textile engineers. A few times you have to ask by someone about fabric weight calculation in your job profession.

There are so many who still don’t know the manual calculating process of it. anylbgarithnic calculation can be readily performed by means of it.

Now, since as will be shown in the pages following, the common wire table (B.& S.) has a logarith-mic basis, we have a relation which makes it possible to find any of the properties of copper wire from the slide rule; in fact, the slide rule becomes a complete wire table.

Slide rules are used for quick calculations, not for purposes that require extreme precision. For instance, if the answer falls between the and marks, write down whichever value it's closer to. If you can't tell, write Advertisement. Part 2 of 4: Multiplying NumbersViews: 41K.

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. Additionally, The slide rule does not tell you where the decimal point is located in the answer.

To do a calculation with a slide rule you reduce all numbers to scientific notation with digits then use the slide rule to perform the basic operations. In a separate calculation you find the order of magnitude by combining the powers of This particular slide rule has a ruler (not shown) that lists common formulas and physical data on one side.

Those may be useful for slide rule calculations. However, the other side of that ruler has a detailed list and explanation of common notations in set theory. This is about as useless for slide rule calculations as a list of large mammals.
