Square Root
« on: May 06, 2020, 07:24:33 PM »
Wondering if anyone has explored creating a square root that is capable of values larger than 255 one u8. Currently the square root function provided in guide takes a u8 (0-255 decimal) input and outputs the answer to 2 decimal places (multiplied by 100).

I am trying to translate a quadratic line of best fit for psi to mA and need to be able to take the square root of significantly larger values. I've started looking a bit at algorithms and such to do so but it could be time consuming. I may be better off just using a linear line of best fit instead and trying to deal with the error. Possibly having to split my output into multiple lines of best fit.

Misunderstood the description page. It does accept up to U32's as an input. Just does not deal with negatives (tough for a virtual machine to imagine things and all)
