# Calculating The Radius Of A Curve

Feb 19, 2009I am trying to find a formula to calculate the total size from a to b with the curve being in cluded in the total.

I am trying to find a formula to calculate the total size from a to b with the curve being in cluded in the total.

I have a data set (Set#1) that consists of a positional rank (1-240) and a dollar value ($46-$1) for each positional rank. It's not a straight line set.

What I need to do is take that curve and apply it to another data set (Set#2) (1-240) and assign a dollar value ($46-$1) to each positional rank.

A "corner cutting" way of doing it would be an Index/Match to simply carry over the dollar value from (for example) #45 from my Set#1 to #45 in my Set#2. This could work reasonably well with data sets of the same size, but mine aren't always the same size, so I need to apply the curve itself. I

I have used ROW function to determine the facets lengths and the number of internal angles and also the radius's

the offset figure is the distance the track or pole is set from the frame this can be adjustable by us or the end user

the radius measurement is a minimum and a maximum that the aluminium can be bent, will probably

be set parametrs to work with

Now bay widows come in all sorts of shapes and sizes

90 degree angle bays

2 bend bays

3 bend bays this is why I am using the row function, once the measurments are entered can excel generate

I have more than 1000000 coordinates with heights to sort through. The aim is to be able to give a specific radius and check all coordinates within this radius if the slope is more than a maximum slope. If this is the case it need to put the value (in this case) 100 in a new column. The reason for this is we have a reasonable flat terrain but the entire area is filled with Anthills. I need to sort the data. Normal ground points (No Anthills) should be labelled/coded as 200 and anthills as 100. This will allow my program to know the difference between the ground and anthills. In the tab "Input Sheet" I have a small portion of co-ordinates starting from row 8 to row 53 (this will have to extend all the way down to the last row in excel). I need to copy each row starting with row 8 (C8:E8) and paste it in row 2 (C2:E2). Column H indicates if the points are forming an anthill and the code needs to change. I have my final answer in the tab "Final Answer" that I require for my program. Is there any way I can write a VBA code that will check all the point instead of doing it manually.

I am looking for a function [or method] to calculate a polynomial curve fit. I can do it on a graph with the existing graph and chart tools, but I need to calculate it myself. Does such software exist somewhere in my Excel 2007 package, or can anyone recommend a freeware program? I am hesitant to download an unknown, un-recommended add-in.

i am getting some data via RS 232 port and plotting it straight to excel, which comes out to be in forms of waves you can say sine waves, now i need to calculate area under the curve, say like if i highlight some area it will automatically calculate the area, or if i select two points on the curve it will calculate the area. please help me out i am really stuck at this part.

I like to make a linear function out of two coordinate pairs.

First Pair (x1,y1) = (Highest Exam Grade, 99) = (H,99)

Second Pair (x2,y2) = (Class Exam Average, Desired Exam Average) =(C,D)

Slope = (99-D)/(H-C) = m

Linear Function = Y-y = m(X-x) = Y-99=m(X-H)

Each student grade would = "Y" i.e. Y=m(X-H)+99

For example. Let's assume that I want to forcast growth from January through December. I know that in January I will have 100 units. In December, I will have 1,000 units. Is there a formula to predict the the units in Feb-Nov (using a normal growth curve)?

I am trying to calculate the equation of a curve which best fits some data. On the x-axis is date and y-axis the readings. The curve is quadratic, so on the chart I am fitting a 2nd order polyomial and displaying the equation. To prove that the equation the trendline gives me is reasonable, I am applying the equation on the x parameter to get the y parameter estimate and looking to see the error between predicted and actual - see attached.

The equation and the output from it are clearly rubbish, even though on the graph the trendline is a reasonable fit - see attached. Has anyone any ideas why? I think it has something to do with using a date on the x-axis but no idea why. Is there a way to correct for this? I also tried using the following I to calculate the coefficients which came up with a reasonable forecast (although linest should only be used for linear data): =LINEST(C3:C15,B3:B15^{1,2,3})

I am working on Project Planning, I need to create the Progress curve for our Project based on Weight Factor every month.

I need to create the Plan and actual curve based on the dates defined in particular activities. Once the activity progress is calculated every month based on cut off date then it will sum product with corresponding WF to get the progress achieved every month. Presently I am calculating the values every month and pasting the values in Chart data every month. I had created the S Curve and attached here.

Now my objective is to automatically calculate the values for the entire cut off date at one time (From Project Start to End). i.e I don't want to do any manual work in the Chart. I will update only the actual Dates in the file, then the curves need to get automatically updated.

1) I don't want to calculate the progress for individual activities, I would like to calculate the overall progress directly.

2) When I change the Cut off date, then the previous values needs to become static.

I'm trying to find a formula that would spread out a value amongst multiple cells along a bell curve. Say I have $x,xxx. I want to spread that amount out in a certain proportion, regardless of how many cells I'm spreading it throughout.

Say I have a $10,000 project. I want to be able to spread it out like a bell curve in the cells I choose. For instance, if it was a five month project it would be distributed as

January - $1,000

February - $2,500

March - $3,000

April - $2,500

May - $1,000

If I added another month it would change to

January - $833.33

February - $1,666.66

March - $2,500.00

April - $2,500.00

May - $1,666.66

June - $833.33

I already thought of manually adding percentages to each cell, but the formula needs to be dynamic.

So as you can see each row = one day divided in 2 cycles of 12 hours : every 12 hours the cat gets a new injection of insulin (the columns "U" being the number of units of insulin the cat receives)

Now I want to turn this sheet into two different curves that would look like these : [URL]

As you can see the first graph shows data based on days (x) and insulin dose (y), while the second curves shows data based on days (x), and blood glucose values (y). This is basically the only way we could clearly see how the cat's disease is evolving over a long period of time.

If he had just started to take all these values from his cat I guess it would be simple to do, but since he already has a lot of data entered in his spreadsheet, I was wondering if I could use this data (and not write each number in a new document), to make things a little more simple and to avoid mistakes.

I'm trying to make a worksheet where I can calculate the cost of a mobile postpaid subscription. It is charged per minute and the cost differs depending on which of the 2 available networks the customer is calling to. The first 20 minutes are free, not depending on network.

Edit:

Charges to network A is 1,79,- per minute after the first 20 minutes are spent.

Charges to network B is 2,29,- per minute after the first 20 minutes are spent.

To sum up:

1. The customer makes a call.

2. If there there are available free minutes, these should be spent first.

3. The customer is charged per minute, depending on network called.

I am having a problem with some of the cells in a spreadsheet not calculating.

For example, in column A, all the cells have formulas that pull data from another sheet. When I enter the formula, only the formula shows (not the result). I can't figure out what is wrong as the formulas in column B work fine (the results are showing, but not using the same data that column A is).

I am thinking it may have something to do with the data being used to calculate the formulas but not sure. How can I resolve this?

For my Intro to Engineering class, I collected data of two filter media in the laboratory. The data included the % of the media which passed through a sieve and the sieve openings. For use in a certain equation, I need the opening size at the 10th, 30th, 50th, 70th and 90th percentiles. I've tried searching on the Microsoft website but I don't think the PERCENTILE function will work correctly with the given data. I also tried using the slope between points to find the opening sizes at the percentiles mentioned, but doing so yielded different results from my professor's. Attached is the data I collected organized in tables and graphs of the data. I have also attached a pdf file of an example which my professor has given us.

Problem - billing spreadsheet for prisoner fee.

1 - 8 hrs = $55

9 - 24 hrs = $55 + $65 or $120

Anything over 24 hrs - $65 for each additional (24 hrs) ($185)

So if you were locked up for 6 hrs it is $55. If you were locked up for 18 hrs it is $120. If you were locked up for 28 hrs it is $185. And if you were locked up for 49 hrs it is $250. Cell F5 contains number of hours locked up - I would like cell I5 to calculate the cost of the stay. I am proud of myself for figuring out the date and time subtraction - but this part has me stumped.

I have run into a problem I have not found a solution for surprisingly. I need to calculate several fields on the form prior to saving it and thus exporting the data to the worksheet. All I can find is how to calculate the field in a worksheet and then reference it with VB code on the form. Is what I want to do possible?

If I run into many more problems I may want to shop this project out as my schedule barely allows for the work I have let alone attempting to learn VBA on the fly.

If anyone is interested I can post the project so far along with the detail of what I want it do in the end.

I have the workbook set to Auto Calc the Cells, which seems to be a bad idea, because with the amount of formula in the workbook, it slows the whole thing down and makes it impossible to do anything within it.

Is there a way that I can speed this process up, using some code when I run certain sections?

There is a copy of what I am doing, so you can see the amount of formula.
