Pretty impressive vessel...

Well, we might discuss the metaphor in terms of displacement... maybe not in metric tons! According to the HP datasheet for the 50g it has a displacement of 196 g. My grandpa's J model Comptometer has an overall displacement of about 8.2 kg... according to the WP34s this is a whopping delta of 4,083.67 % <increase> in overall tonnage. We could reverse this of course and say that the reduction from 8200g -> 196g is an overall delta of -97.6 % <decrease>.

Well, grandpa obviously couldn't call his RPN calculator a "pocket calculator," but seriously you needed a John Deer forklift to carry that thing anyplace!

Kind regards,
