(11C) Distance, Speed and Time
Program to calculates the Distance (d), Speed (s), or Time (t)

for a moving body according to the following formulas:

d = st [distance = speed x time]

s = d/t [speed = distance ÷ time]

t = d/s [time = distance ÷ speed]

Given any two of the quantities d, s and t, the program will calculate the third.

---------------------------------------
Remark:

This program was adapted from HP-97 Owner's Handbook page 235

Since HP-11C doesn't have the special "test-clearing feature of data entry"

so this program use Conditional Test to simulate Data Entry Flag.
--------------------------------------
Procedure:

[A] Distance
[B] Speed
[C] Time

Example: Fix 4

Distance = 3500 miles
Speed = 2070.101 miles per hour
Time = ?

3500 [A] display 0.0000
2070.101 [B] display 0.0000
[C] display answer 1.4127 // Time is 1 hour, 41 minutes, 27 seconds
-----------------------------
Speed = 95 kilometers per hour
Time = 48 hours
Distance = ?

95 [B] display 0.0000
48 [C] display 0.0000
[A] display answer 4560.0000 kilometers // Distance
---------------------------
Distance = 1.5 kilometers
Time = 0.03349 // 3 minutes, 34.9 seconds
Speed = ?

1.5 [A] display 0.0000
.03349 [C] display 0.0000
[B] display answer 25.1280 Kilometers per hour // Speed
--------------------------
Program: [ , ] is a decimal point
Code:
 LBL A  // Distance STO 1 , X≠Y RTN RCL 2 RCL 3 x RTN ------- LBL B  // Speed STO 2 , X≠Y RTN RCL 1 RCL 3 ÷ RTN ------ LBL C  // Time ->H STO 3 , X≠Y RTN RCL 1 RCL 2 ÷ ->H.MS RTN

RE: (11C) Distance, Speed and Time
This add-on program option for Distance, Speed and Time from previous post

Added the Distance or Speed for the units conversion
between Mile and Kilometer

Previous Program calculate Distance, Speed or Time using these Labels

[A] Distance
[B] Speed
[C] Time

mile and kilometer conversion

[D] Mile to Kilometer
[E] Kilometer to Mile

Program: recommend FIX 2 precision
Code:
 LBL D  // Mile to Kilometer SF0 GTO 0 LBL E  // Kilometer to Mile CF 0 LBL0 5 LN F0 GTO 1 ÷ RTN LBL 1 x RTN

Procedure:

Mile [D] display Kilometer
Kilometer [E] display Mile

RE: (11C) Distance, Speed and Time

According to the information from Google Map

Distance from Los Angeles to Las Vegas is 269.4 mile
Approximate time of arrival is 3 hour and 49 minute

What is the speed according to this information?
What is the speed answer in kilometer per hour?

If speed change to 90 mile per hour, how long it take to get to Las Vegas?

-------------------------------
Procedure: FIX 2

Distance: 269.4 mi
Time: 3 h 49 min
Speed: ?

269.4 [A] display 0.00
3.49 [C] display 0.00
[B] display 70.59

Answer: Speed is 70 mile per hour

---------------------

Change unit from mile per hour to kilometer per hour

Previous mil/hr answer on display [D] display 113.60

--------------------
Speed change to 90 mile per hour what is the time?

90 [B] display 0.00
[C] display 2.59

Increasing speed from 70 to 90 mil/h the arrival time will be about 50 minutes faster.

The recommended speed from Google Map is 70 mil/h that is based on California freeway speed limit.

Remark:

to avoid unwanted speeding ticket !!!

Here is another reason: The physics of speeding cars

RE: (11C) Distance, Speed and Time
Thanks Albert Chan

Good detail information.

Before in California most Freeway posted 65 mil/hr speed limit but
nowadays changed to 70 mil/hr (Even in the old days posted 55 mil/hr)

No wonder that Google Map calculate Distance and Time based
on 70 mil/hr speed.
-------------------------
With Google Map again from Los Angeles to New York

Distance = 2789.5 mi
Time = 41 hr

The speed is 68 mil/hr // Assume that continue driving none stop to destination

RE: (11C) Distance, Speed and Time
This program used Flags just like the example shown here for HP-65

Distance, Speed and Time using Flags in program.

RE: (11C) Distance, Speed and Time
This version work the same as the HP-65 program example above.

Program make used of the
Subroutine, Flags and Indirect Line Number Branching.

The main focus on this program is the Indirect Line Number Branching.
I don't see people using this feature much and HP-11C User's Handbook
doesn't give program example on this feature.
--------------------------------
Procedure: USER mode
1. Initialize [A]
2. Input any two of [B] [C] [D]
3. To calculate [E] the Unknown [B] [C] or [D]
--------------------------------
Program:
Code:
 001 LBL A  // Initialize  002 SF1? 003 CLx 004 RTN ----------- 005 LBL B  // Distance 006  1 007  5 008 CHS  // Ready to send Program Line# to Store to Indirect Register 009 GSB 0 010 F1? 011 GTO I  // Goto line 015 012 RCL 2 013 RCL 3 014  x 015 STO 1 016 RTN ----------- 017 LBL C  // Speed 018  2 019  7 020 CHS  // Ready to send Program Line# to Store to Indirect Register 021 GSB 0 022 F1? 023 GTO I  // Goto line 027 024 RCL 1 025 RCL 3 026  ÷ 027 STO 2 028 RTN ---------- 029 LBL D  // Time 030  4 031  1 032 CHS  // Ready to send Program Line# to Store to Indirect Register 033 GSB 0 034 F1 035 GTO I  // Goto line 041 036 RCL 1 037 RCL 2 038  ÷ 039 >H.MS 040 RTN 041 >H 042 STO 3 043 RTN ----------- 044 LBL E  // Compute 045 CF1? 046 RTN ----------- 047 LBL 0  // Use for storing individual Indirect Register Line# Branching  048 STO I 049 X<>Y 050 RTN
