Abstract : The design and operation of a simple analog computer to solve for refractivity and density in the atmosphere are given. The equation for density is developed and appropriate scale changes are included to cover most ll meteorlogical situations. Special attention is given to the design of a non-linear potentiometer. Accuracy and tolerance requirements are discussed. ufficient information including circuit diagrams is presented from which similar units could be built. (Author)
