Lable  Function


Axis #
 This is the axis number as used by Babbage, the output
axis is # 8. The value of that axis is printed in the y=f(x) field.

Oper.
 This shows what operation occured when you click on the "1 axis" button

Number in Axis
 This is the number on the axis.
Negative values must be in 10s complement form, just like the Babbage design

neg
 A click on the button performs a 10s complement on the register.
(This permits the user to enter the absolute value of a negative
number and have the program do the conversion.)

Radio Buttons
 x^2 x^3 sin(x)  clicking one of these buttons loads
the machine with starting values for those functions
x^2  starting with x=0
x^3  starting with x=0
sin(x)  sine function of x, in degrees, starting at 0,
0 to 23 degrees, step one minute

"1 axis" button
 adds the next register, sets the operation in "Add" above

"1 cycle" button
 performs one complete set of additions to get the next output value

"10 cycles button
 performs 10 cycles  see "1 cycle" above
This can speed operations

Phase
 shows which registers get added next

Cycle
 shows "x"

X
 shows "x" in convenient form, in trig in degrees and minutes

y=f(x)
 shows the output function

% error
 shows the percent error of the Babbage machine calculation
relative to the value calculated by your computer.
a) If the "correct" value is less than 1 (sin & cos), % error is
relative to full scale, i.e. 1
b) Else it is relative to the "correct" value
