Dear Cleggsan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_calculator
http://www.math.com/students/calculators/source/scientific.htm

Can there be further enhancements to the Scientific Calculator device functions in addition to the current functions provided by the Device ?

For examples : Matrix Algebra, Computing real roots of quadratic equation, Simultaneous equations, Vector algebra etc

Do all modern calculators also have physical and chemical constants
useful in physics, chemistry formulas ?

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

Answer
There are so many so called scientific calculators available on the market that it is quite difficult to tabulate all the functions and physical constants that they may include.

I would think that doing a survey of Casio and Hewlett Packard models would cover a large part of the world wide market.

However, the greatest market segment is for business and financial use rather than scientific because so many students, engineers and scientists have computers available.

But, you have a good idea and it should be exploited and investigated for a product idea.

Best wishes.
