Disclaimer: I believe the key codes for the programs in this blog entry are the all the same even though the HP 20S and HP 21S have slightly different codes.  Format:   Step  Key: Key Code.  I took turns programming the HP 20S and HP 21S.

1.  Intensity and Illumination

The follow equation relates the luminous intensity (measured in candelas, cd) and illuminance (measured in lux) of a light source.  The equation assumes the light source radiates a spherical matter.

E = I / R^2

E = illuminance
I = luminous intensity
R = radius of the sphere’s light (meters)

LBL A:  Solve for E
LBL B:  Solve for I
LBL C:  Solve for R

Registers:
R0 = E
R1 = I
R2 = R

Store the following values in the register and execute the appropriate label.

Program:

01  LBL A:  61,41,A
02 RCL 1:  22, 1
03 ÷:  45
04 RCL 2:  22, 2
05 x^2:  51, 11
06 =: 74
07 STO 0:  21, 0
08 R/S:  26
09 LBL B:  61,41,B
10  RCL 0: 22,0
11  *:  55
12  RCL 2: 22,2
13  x^2:  51,11
14  =:  74
15  STO 1: 21, 1
16  R/S:  26
17  LBL C: 61,41,C
18  RCL 1: 22,1
19 ÷: 45
20 RCL 0: 22,0
21  =:  74
22 √:  11
23 STO 2: 21, 2
24 R/S:  26

Example 1:
R1 = I = 400, R2 = R = 2.
Solve for E,  XEQ A returns 100

Example 2:
R0 = E = 180, R2 = R = 3
Solve for I, XEQ B returns 1620

Example 3:
R1 = I =420, R0 = E = 195
Solve for R, XEQ C returns 1.467598771

2.  Days Since January 1

Calculate the number of days since January 1.  For more information, please see:  http://edspi31415.blogspot.com/2019/03/ti-84-plus-and-hp-41c-number-of-days.html

Input:
R1:  day
R2: month
R3: 0 if we are working in a non-leap year, 1 if we are working in a leap year

Output:
R4:  number of days since January 1

3.  Numerical Derivative

f'(x0) ≈ ( f(x0 + h) – f(x0 – h) ) / ( 2*h )

x = point
h = small change of x, example h = 0.0001

LBL A:  Main Progam
LBL F:  f(X), where R0 acts as X

Input variables:
R1 = h
R2 = point x0

Used variables:
R0 = x   (use R0 for f(x), LBL F)

Calculated Variables:
R3 = f'(x)
