I wrote a simple Calculator exactly like this but including
sprocket sizes, no of teeth, using VB. script. I used it to
compare some speed calculations someone had made, I thought
an update would be a good subject for a simple Java program.
So here it is, I can't make any sense of the help files with
jbuilder, j++ or suns Java workshop. I wrote it as an application
then spent ages trying to make it into an applet. Major things
wrong: I can't understand how to trap errors, the only way
I managed to format was with some really ugly code to snip
the characters off a string.
So it doesn't format the output, you get a double precision
number. Don't leave: blanks, Nan's[not a number] or to many
zeros. I have put sample numbers in just press calculate to
see the speed.
Leave a zero in the one you want to calculate, and press
calculate; you can select kph or mph and tyre sizes or tyre
diameter. Tyre sizes are radial 235 60 16 for 7.5x 16 measure
the tyre diameter or calculate the appropriate size?
Any suggestions, tips on Java etc. mail me.
