Points to Be Kept in Mind While Practicing Virtual Calculator


While practicing the virtual calculator, some doubts could arise in your minds. Given below are some important points that will help you in getting the answer to your queries:

This is not a fractional calculator. NAT questions need the answers only in decimal form.

No separate keys are available for converting polar to rectangular form and vice versa. You should use appropriate conversions using the calculator.

Complex numbers cannot be represented in this calculator. All questions relating to any area where complex numbers might be deemed useful, power systems or other areas, can be solved using this calculator.

Matrices of numbers cannot be represented. The candidates need to carry out all the matrix related calculations manually.

This is a non-programmable calculator. It does not solve any quadratic, cubic, or simultaneous equations.

You can’t get a stand-alone calculator app for mobile or computer. You should access the calculator through the web.

Web connection is needed only to load the calculator on your webpage on your computer or mobile. Once it is loaded you do not need an internet connection to carry out the calculations.

Any constants needed for the solution will be provided in the question paper. Wherever it is not provided then it is expected that the candidates should know the values of the constants.

The keyboard will not be accessible during the entire duration of the examination, you need to use the mouse.

You should make sure that the top display area is showing the sequence of the keys pressed and not the formula.

You can use the scribble pad for assistance since the calculator will not store the previous steps.

There is a memory button in the virtual scientific calculator also to store a value.
