The HP-41C series are programmable, expandable, continuous memory handheld RPN calculators made by Hewlett-Packard from 1979 to 1990. The original model, HP-41C, was the first of its kind to offer alphanumeric display capabilities. Later came the HP-41CV and HP-41CX, offering more memory and functionality.
Hello, I am new to this forum and know very little about it. But perhaps somebody can help me.
I have an Epson 2040 projector. The beam it projects fits into the screen at a distance of about 4.5 meters. But logistically I need to put it at 8 meters from the screen, so the projected images are...
I would like to realize an image of the cantilever. The dimensions are (450x50) microns. I would like to use a self-constructed telephoto lens. This consists of two lenses. The image magnification can be 4 to 8. The magnification of the image is nothing more than the ratio between the two focal...
I noticed on the commute home today a car with a LCD rear view mirror and I wondered whether, if I were driving it, I'd be able to focus on it the same as I focus on my car's glass review view mirror? I need glasses to read, and that includes a computer, so figured a LCD screen that close, even...

Hello Everybody,
I'm David from Spain, and happy to be here.
We have a LED that needs a FL50mm collimator which is focused to infinite, because we want parallel rays.
So the lens is at a distance 50mm (approx) from the led.
However, 50mm is too much distance for our design, so the question is...

I have an extremely fast (f/1.05) night vision optic that I scavenged from a old night vision unit which is faster than current production lenses (f/1.23). However due to the design of newer night vision tubes, the lens will not focus to infinity on the night vision tube. This is because the old...
I wanted to calculate the focal length and focal point of the collimator. The collimator diameter is 3mm, and I wanted to focus on the 100-micrometre active area of the detector.
Hello. I need formulas for the focal length of a lens when I have refractive indices of two centers and two radii of curvature of spherical surfaces or one radius of curvature of spherical surfaces. I search the internet but can't find it.
##\frac{1}{f}=\frac{1}{u}+\frac{1}{v}##
##f = \frac{u.v}{u+v}##
Let: u + v = w → w = 250 mm ± 8 mm
Percentage uncertainy of v = (3/50) . 100% = 6%
Percentage uncertainty of u = (5/200) . 100%=2.5%
Percentage uncertainty of w = (8/250) . 100% = 3.2%
Percentage uncertainty of f = 6 % + 2.5 %...
The above image (source) is pretty much the only thing we're told about how the MAPK pathway is activated. However, in passing, FAK was mentioned. We were told that focal adhesion integrins activate FAK which then activates the MAPK pathway. Seen in the image (source) below
However the two...

I tried -M=pq = f/(f-p) = f/f - f/p = 1-(f/p)

But since it’s the y intercept, p will equal zero and so the focal length will be 0?
