A level Physics- Are calculators with engineering symbols allowed?Watch
However, one of the features of the newer calculator is that it can insert engineering symbols when calculating values.
For example, if one unit has a prefix of kilo, and another a prefix of micro, rather than converting the values manually, I can just use the given values, and add the prefix in front of the value.
My Physics teacher isn't sure if this is allowed.
The older Casio calculators already have facilities that allow for unit conversions, and they have constants, such as the mass of an electron, or its charge, however they haven't done this before.
Do you know of any rules for the Physics exams regarding calculators? I looked, but only found pages on the Maths exams, which are concerned with symbolic integration, differentiation etc.
