The user interface browser presents eight categories: A
constants library, an equation library, integral tables, a polynomial solver, reference
data, reference formulas, Taylor expansion, and vector analysis. The top level interface
browser for the equation library presents 11 categories, and each category has many
sub-categories. For example, the optics category has six sub-categories (see below, far

Equation sets in a given sub-topic can be solved as a
whole, or as a selected set of equations. The variables can be entered with units,
variables in the equation sets have descriptions in addition to names, and often an
equation set will have an associated picture. The results of computations can be plotted
using the plotting routines as soft keys, allowing graphical evaluation of step-wise
changes in key variables.
45 constants are incorporated into the physics card for
quick reference. They include general constants, such as Napier and Euler constants, and
golden ration, as well as universal constants such as gravitational constant, permittivity
and permeability of free space, properties of electrons, protons and neutrons, standard
temperature and pressure, molar volume, Avogadro’s number, electronic charge and
