Maths & Science

- Efficiency of your phone or laptop charger Have you ever wondered how efficient your phone or laptop charger is? If you look at the tiny writing on the charger it gives you a few numbers that help you work it out. They look a bit like this: To work out the efficiency, you’re looking for the input voltage, input current, and output voltage and output current, highlighed in yellow above. The input voltage might be in mA (milli-Amps), so to convert that to Amps, simply divide by 1,000. In this case, both input and output currents are in Amps, so can enter the numbers as they appear. For this one, the input voltage is a range (100-240V), so you can enter that range directly in the Livesheet (as has been done by default in the form below). Try entering the numbers for some of yours and see how they look. I’ve found that 25% seems to be fairly typical.
- A number rounded to x significant figures If you want to round a number to a certain number of significant figures, there is no built-in function for this. This Livesheet will do it for you. Just enter the number and how many significant figures you want to round to. The default number of significant figures is 1.
- e^x Taylor Series Expansion This livesheet tells you the Taylor series expansion for ex , to the number of terms you specify, and tells you what the next term is.
- Normal Distribution Probability Density Function with given mean and standard deviation This tells you the Probability Density Function (PDF) for a Normal Distribution with a given mean and standard deviation. Just enter your X value and your mean and standard deviation values and it will tell you the PDF. You can read more about Normal Distributions on Wikipedia.
- Normal Distribution Probability Density Function The Probability Density Function (PDF) for a Normal Distribution with a mean of 0 and standard deviation of 1. Enter the value and it will tell you the pdf:
- Force between two charged particles To calculate the force between two charged particles, using Coulomb’s Law, add the strengths of the two charges and the distance between them. The resulting force is the repulsive force; that is, the force pushing them away. A negative number is an attractive force pulling them together. You can enter numbers in scientific format as well as in standard format. For example, for 1.5 x 1015 enter 1.5e15.
- Numbers in Exponent Form For working with numbers in the ‘scientific’ exponent form. This converts an exponent form into a number: And this converts a number into an exponent form: Exponent form is actually text, so if you are using it in a calculation you need to convert it into a number before doing anything with it. You can convert it back to exponent form when you want to display it. Numbers are currently accurate only to the 16th significant figure, so you may find strange numbers appear after that point. We hope to fix this problem soon.
- Fix Decimal Places Fix the number of decimal places (in other words, add trailing zeros if a number doesn’t have the number of decimal places you need).
- Geometric Mean Find the Geometric Mean of two numbers. This is useful for estimating. If you have an idea of the low and high range of a value you are trying to estimate, this gives you the central value which is the same factor away from both the low and high estimate. Or you can calculate the geometric mean of any number of numbers in the form below, by entering them in the box separated by commas.
- Sum of a geometric series Use this to add up any number of terms in a geometric series (a geometric series is one where to calculate each term you multiply the previous term by the same number). Or – find the sum over an infinite number of terms:
- Arctan An annoying oversight in Livesheets is the lack of inverse trig functions. They will be turning up in the new version, when it’s complete. But in the mean time, this sheet calculates the arctan of a number (in radians) using a polynomial expansion. This gives you the option to choose how many terms you want to go to in your expansion (the more you use, the slower it will be). 11 or so seems to be enough for most values. For numbers close to 1 or -1, it seems to need more, perhaps going to 50 or so.
- Calculating Electrical Power from Voltage, Resistance, Current In order to calculate electrical power consumption, you need any two of three pieces of information: Voltage (measured volts) Current (measured in amps) Resistence (measured in ohms). This calculator lets you enter the ones you know and calculates the power using all three methods.

- Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation – Calculate the force between two masses Calculate the gravitational force (in Newtons) between two point masses (in Kilograms) separated by a distance (in Metres). The force on each mass will have the same magnitude and act along the line joining them. This function can also be used to calculate the approximate force between two bodies with spatial dimensions by using the distance between their centres of mass. Created by Navino Evans
- How much energy does it use when you leave the hot tap running? Enter the amount of time it is running for, and the starting and ending temperatures of the water, and it will tell you approximately how much energy it is using up to keep the hot tap running. 7°C is a good bet for starting temperature in winter in the UK, perhaps more like 15°C to 20°C in the summer; and usually the hot tap will produce water at about 60°C. And, in terms of money. The current prices can be found on this USwitch Calculator. At the time of writing, electricity is 13.55p/KwH and gas is 4.162p/KwH on standard tariffs. SourcesHow much water used per minute when you leave the tap running?Volumetric Heat Capacity of Water at 25°C(This calculation approximates by using the heat capacity of water at 25°C rather than taking account of the change in heat capacity with temperature, but it is accurate to within less than 1%).

Multiply units by separating them with a dot (.) and divide them by separating them with a slash (/). For example, for 6 metres per second, you would write: 6′m/s For 2 watts per square metre per second, you would write: 2′w/m.m/s
- Multiply two numbers with units This allows you to multiply two numbers with units, and it will tell you the resulting number and tell you the units. Use it by entering the number first, then the inverted comma symbol (‘), then whatever units you want. Multiply units by separating them with a dot (.) and divide them by separating them with a slash (/). For example, for 6 metres per second, you would write: 6’m/s For 2 watts per square metre per second, you would write: 2’w/m.m/s

Go obtain a Gmail message permalink, click “Show Original”, then paste the URL into this form to see get a permalink URL which will show the message in a normal view.
- Get URL From Google Link If you try to copy a link from Google search results, it gives you a long and complicated URL that starts something like: https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=… It’s clearly not the URL you are looking for when you went to ‘Copy Link Address’. This calculator lets you enter that long Google link and strips it down to find the actual link you were looking for.
- Arctan An annoying oversight in Livesheets is the lack of inverse trig functions. They will be turning up in the new version, when it’s complete. But in the mean time, this sheet calculates the arctan of a number (in radians) using a polynomial expansion.

It lets you enter a list of numbers of strings of text, and a single item, and will return the item in a second list which corresponds with the matching item in the first list. Unlike the other vlookup-equivalent node (which only works for numbers and matches the first value that is higher than the one entered), this will only give you a result if there is an exact match, and in this case works for text as well as numbers. Click ‘Use This’ to import it into your space, if you have an account.
- Enter any units you want and convert them into a primary unit This is a useful component when you want to allow other people to enter their own units. It’s best used by pressing ‘Use This’ to import it into your space. You can then add the number and units in the first box, the list of units in the second box, and the corresponding list of multiples in the third box, and it will then give you your number in the primary unit (the one which has the multiple of 1). You can enter up to 2 units at any time. For example you could add units of both lb and oz, and then type “2lb 3oz” into the box. Spaces are always ignored.

- Adapting the quantities of ingredients This works best when imported into Livesheets by using the ‘Use This’ button. Add a list of ingredients as an input, then the base amount and the amount you want, and it will adjust all of the quantities. To use it, you need the number at the beginning, then a space (for example, if write “100 g flour”, not “100g flour”. If there is no quantity, that’s fine (eg. “a pinch of salt”). For quantities less than 2, it tries to give you the amount as a fraction (eg. 1/2 onion).
- More than or equal to For a single comparison you can use ‘>=’ for more than or equal to, but if you want to apply it to a list, that doesn’t work. Instead, you can use this.
- Significance Round to the nearest number of significance. For example, if you round 1.1111 to a significance of 0.1, it will give you 1.1.

- Internal Rate of Return An approximation of Internal Rate of Return, for when you have one outgoing amount followed by a series of incoming amounts. This is designed for use inside Livesheets so it doesn’t really work as a form. Instead, use it by signing up for an account, then clicking on Use This, to import it into your space. Just enter the outgoing amount in the first box and the incoming amounts as a list in the second box.
- Net Present Value This is a Livesheet which relies on a list as an input so can only inside another livesheet, but you can use it by clicking on the Use This button to import it into your space.

- Livesheets VLookup Equivalent This Livesheet is the full equivalent of VLookup. Unfortunately it doesn’t work as a web form, but you can Use it by clicking on Use This, and then make use of it within your own livesheets. To use it, enter the lookup value in the first box, the list of values you want to match it against in the second box (in ascending order), and the corresponding list of values you want to pick a result from in the third box. It looks for the first answer that is higher than the lookup value and returns the corresponding return value. If the lookup value is higher than or equal to all the values in the second box, it returns the (n+1)th item in the return list if it exists. This means the return list can be one longer than the lookup list.
- Value is less than which row? If you click the button to Use This, you can use it a bit like a vlookup in Excel. Unfortunately, you can’t use this in the form version though, you have to Use it. Enter a value in the first box and an ascending list of values in the second. It will tell you the number of the first row which is larger than the entered value. For example, if you enter 10, and the values 9, 11, 13, it will return the number 2 (because 10 is less than the 2nd value in the list).

- Split a string of text by two delimiters Enter a string of text that is delimited by two delimiters, and the delimiters you want to use, and it will give you the list of items.
- Reverse the order of a comma separated list Enter a comma separated list, get it back in reverse order.
- Convert text to number if it is a number, otherwise leave as text This is for using within Livesheets, it isn’t so useful as a form. Enter some text, and it will give it back to you as a number, or if that’s not possible leave it as text.
- Sort a comma separated list (numbers and text) Enter a comma separated list containing numbers and text, have it sorted.
