" 1x1-KOERPER "

The Instant-Multiplication (& 10s-Carry) Module (= "1x1-KOERPER") ================================================================= PICTURE shows the LEFT CRANK with the VERTICAL LIFT TO FACTOR 9 ( with a hidden support ) The TOOTH-BARS represent the values 9 .. 1 - The INPUT-UNIT put the TOOTH-WHEEL on this tooth-bar what represents its input value. The movement of the tooth-bars will TURN the tooth-wheel. This turn represents the input VALUE and is transfered into the ARITHMETIC UNIT. The MODULE consists of nine layers: The upper one represents the products 9 .. 1 with factor 1 - the next lower layer the products with factor 2 a.s.o. Because a product (e.g. 8 x 3 = 24 ) may result in two digits, each layer ( factor > 1 ) has two "COMBS": One for the "ONES"- and one for its "10s-CARRY"-REPRESENTATION. The MODULE has to make MOVEMENTS IN F O U R COORDINATES ... WITH THE LEFT CRANK: -------------------- (1st) A VERTICAL LIFT setting the FACTOR = 1, or 2, ... or 9 in the hight, facing the tooth-bars with "10s-CARRY"-COMB. < E X A M P L E : "MULTIPLICATION"; INPUT "8"; FACTOR "3" > WITH O N E T U R N OF THE RIGHT CRANK: -------------------------------------------- (2nd) HORIZONTAL SHIFT ( w. first HALF-TURN of the right crank ) pushing the tooth-bars FORWARD ( w. activated arithmetic ) as far as the "10s-CARRY"-COMB TOOTH-LENGHT ( the "ONES"-COMB fits in between the tooth-bars ! ) and BACKWARD ( with disabled arithmetic unit ) let the tooth-bars moving back (spring forced) to its base-state. < THE ARITHMETIC UNIT DISPLAYS "2" AND MAKES A LEFT-SHIFT! > (3rd) HORIZONTAL SHIFT TO THE SIDE to bring the "ONES"-COMB in the position facing the tooth-bars (4th) HORIZONTAL SHIFT ( w. second HALF-TURN of the right crank ) pushing the tooth-bars FORWARD ( w. activated arithmetic ) as far as the "ONES"-COMB TOOTH-LENGHT and BACKWARD ( with disabled arithmetic unit ) let the tooth-bars moving back (spring forced) to its base-state. < THE ARITHMETIC UNIT DISPLAYS "4" ; R E S U L T = "24" > impressum: ***************************************************************** © C.HAMANN http://public.BHT-Berlin.de/hamann 12/25/10 |
