Abstract

(1) FOUR plates contain five figure tables of 10x,1010x, arc sin 10x, arc tan 10x. The four slides consist of tables of 10x 10-x, 102x. By aligning the slides on the appropriate plate all the usual slide rule calculations which depend on log x and log log x can be performed. The alignment needs great care if a wrong reading is to be avoided.
