How to easily crash an HP Prime
I'm using the latest version : 2018.02.12 1.4.1.13441
It also crashes with the virtual calculator on Windows.

Hi!
Same for me... my calculator reboot. Marcel

RE: How to easily crash an HP Prime
Funny enough that you tried to integrate a trigonometric function in degrees.

Hi,
Here, the angular mode is not the problem.. The prime don't have to reboot on this simple calculation. Marcel

RE: How to easily crash an HP Prime
Mine crashes also. Interestingly, the same integral dosen't crash my 49G+ in degree
mode, but it does give an incorrect answer  4.66682... But the fact remains that the Prime should not crash simply because the degree mode is used instead of radian mode. Definitely a bug.

John Colvin. My HP 50g got the right answer of 4.66829167156. I believe the 49G+ should get the right answer as well. Did you accidentally put in the lower and upper bound in the wrong order?

RE: How to easily crash an HP Prime
This bug is already fixed in source code. Until it is available in a new firmware, you can run int(sin(x^2),x,0,10.0)

I also didn't know (or forgot) that the number format changes the precision of the answer. Like the 15C. Learn something new everyday. Thanks Joe Horn.

I tried in on my SM42. It went into an indefinite loop. Even with accuracy of 0.1

Anyway, it is always better to experience a machine reset than an infinite loop, so in this regard the HP Prime wins hands down Jose Mesquita RadioMuseum.org member

With the correct integration it spent abt 4 sec. to get 0.5836... in RAD and almost instantly 4.6682... in DEG mode.

Did you accidentally put in the lower and upper bound in the wrong order? Am I missing something here? How is 4.6668.... the correct answer? If I convert 10 deg. to pi/18 red. in the upper boundary, I get a result of 0.001772.... on my 50G as well. A graph of sin(x^2) clearly indicates that in this interval, the area under the curve is quite small.

Did you accidentally put in the lower and upper bound in the wrong order? Yes, 10_deg = pi/18_rad, but sin((10_deg)^2) is not the same as sin((pi/18_rad)^2). Plot the sin(x^2) from 0_deg to 10_deg and you'll see it. The integral from 9 to 10 alone is almost 1. X<> c Joe
