Title: Biology >> Dinosaur Mass from Trackway and TCL demo example calculator, numerical analysis
<<TOC>> ***Preface*** [gold]12Feb2020. Here are some calculations using TCL expressions on estimating Dinosaur Mass from Trackway. ---- ***Introduction*** The rule of thumb is that hip height equals expr ( foot_length * 5. ) ---- *** Calculator Usage*** As as alternate way of using the calculator *** Expressions into TCL. *** ---- ***Testcases are important in development of TCL programs. *** In planning any software, it is advisable to gather a number of testcases to check the results of the program. The math for the testcases can be checked by pasting statements in the TCL console. Aside from the TCL calculator display, when one presses the report button on the calculator, one will have console show access to the capacity functions (subroutines). ---- ***Conclusions*** By inspection ---- *** Table 1: Tables*** ---- *** Table 2: Tables *** ---- ---- ***Testcases Section*** ---- **** Testcase 1 **** %|table 1 |printed in| tcl format|% &| quantity| value| comment, if any|& &| 1 :|testcase_number | |& &| 25000000.0 :|mutation rate years (1/N): | |& &| 5000.0 :|number of females: | |& &| 5.0 :|offspring per female: | |& &| 1700000.0 :|geologic interval years: | |& &| 1000.0 :|mutation years: | |& &| 1000.0 :|mutation years: | |& &| 1000.0 :|mutation years: | |& &| 1700.0 :|mutations per geologic interval: | |& ---- **** Testcase 2 **** ---- %|table 2 |printed in| tcl format|% &| quantity| value| comment, if any|& &| 2 :|testcase_number | |& &| 20000000.0 :|mutation rate years (1/N): | |& &| 7000.0 :|number of females: | |& &| 5.0 :|offspring per female: | |& &| 600000.0 :|geologic interval years: | |& &| 1000.0 :|mutation years: | |& &| 571.428 :|mutation years: | |& &| 571.428 :|mutation years: | |& &| 1050.0 :|mutations per geologic interval: | |& ---- **** Testcase 3 **** ---- %|table 3 |printed in| tcl format|% &| quantity| value| comment, if any|& &| 3 :|testcase_number | |& &| 10000000.0 :|mutation rate years (1/N): | |& &| 9000.0 :|number of females: | |& &| 5.0 :|offspring per female: | |& &| 800000.0 :|geologic interval years: | |& &| 1000.0 :|mutation years: | |& &| 222.222 :|mutation years: | |& &| 222.222 :|mutation years: | |& &| 3600.0 :|mutations per geologic interval: | |& ---- ---- ***Screenshots Section*** **** figure 1.
