I see. A trailing ,numer; works. For asin(.8), asin(.8)*180/%pi, numer; produces 53.13... I also found that writing numbers with a trailing .0 forces approximation. And for the built-in constants, float() forces approximation. For example: a: 4.0/5.0\$ disp(a)\$ b: asin(a)\$ ...

Using b+0 doesn't phase it. The problem is getting wxMaxima to make 4/5 into a decimal. If I use a: 0.8\$ b: asin(a)\$ print("the angle is ", b)\$ Then it works. It gives me the angle is 0.92729521800161 But if I try to convert that to degrees: c: b*180/%pi\$ print(&...

I am trying to get wxMaxima to give me arcsin(4/5), either in radians or degrees. I am using a: 4/5\$ b:asin(a)\$ print("the angle is ", b)\$ But it returns the angle is asin(4/5) How do I get wxMaxima to give me the angle? I want .927 radians or 53.1 degrees.

I am not an expert. I am a very rusty amateur, so this has to be checked. But I think the difference in light travel distance you are talking about measuring is 2mm. That is, 1mm out into some 1mm deep feature in the object, and 1 mm back. Plus the 2 km there and back. But ...
