Abstract

Much time spent in checking the analytical and other calculations in a laboratory may be saved by using a programmable calculator. At a slightly higher cost, a microcomputer will not only give a more efficient service, but also permits the computerisation of many activities within a framework of a small to medium industrial organisation. The results of any laboratory analytical procedures invariably require a mathematical interpretation to produce a usable result in terms of percentages, concentrations, etc. Thus the calculation step is an important one and it is sometimes unfortunate that an involved and time consuming analytical procedure which has been accurately carried out, is made worthless by a calculation error. A possibility of a calculation error exists if the operato
