The BritishRealTime Project • www.britishrealtime.com
The BritishRealTime clock has been designed and developed to replace our
sponsorship of the British Telecom speaking clock. Having been sponsors of the
speaking clock for over 22 years and having received 3.5 billion calls we felt that
it was time for a change. So we came up with the idea of creating a new online
clock that didn’t just feature one voice but could incorporate many thousands of
voices and accents reflecting our diverse society. The clock will continually show
different people speaking the hours, minutes and seconds of each ten second
time check. Creating the clock involves filming members of the public in our
specially designed booth.
6
Filming started in September 2008 at The International Jewellery Fair, London
and since then over 6,000 people have been filmed across the country including
Lakeside, Cardiff, Sheffield, Glasgow, Gateshead, Dudley, Manchester, and
Croydon. Filming will continue well into 2009 as the clock continues to grow
incorporating more and more faces of the real British public to create
BritishRealTime.
Please visit www.britishrealtime.com to see the clock and for more information.

Using the Slide Rule Bezel
Flying distance and other navigation calculations as well as general calculations
can be performed using the slide rule bezel located around the outside of the

results, and should only be used as a general reference as an alternative to more
accurate calculations. The outside scale moves by turning the bezel.
26
Inside scale
Outside scale
27
A. Navigation Calculator
1. Calculation of time required
Problem: How long does it take an airplane flying 180 knots to fly a distance of
450 nautical miles?
Solution: Set the 18 mark on the outside scale to the SPEED INDEX ( ). At this
time, the point on the inside scale that is aligned with 45 on the outside scale
indicates (2:30), the answer is 2 hours and 30 minutes.
28
29
2. Speed (Ground Speed) Calculation
Problem: What is the speed (ground speed) of an airplane when it takes 1 hour
and 20 minutes to fly a distance of 240 nautical miles?
Solution: Align the 24 on the outside scale with 1:20 (80) on the inside scale. At
this time, 18 is aligned with the SPEED INDEX ( ) on the inside scale, and the
answer is 180Kt.
30
31
3. Flying distance calculation
Problem: What is the flying distance travelled in 40 minutes at a speed of 210
knots?
Solution: Align the 21 on the outside scale with the SPEED INDEX ( ) of the
the inside scale. The 40 of the inside scale is now pointing to 14 and the answer
is 140 nautical miles.
32
33
4. Fuel consumption rate calculation
Problem: If 120 gallons of fuel are consumed in 30 minutes’ flying time, what is
the fuel consumption rate?
Solution: Align the 12 of the outside scale with the 30 of the inside scale. The
SPEED INDEX ( ) now points to 24 and the answer is 240 gallons per hour.
34
35
5. Fuel consumption calculation
Problem: How much fuel is consumed in 6 hours at a fuel consumption rate of
250 gallons per hour?
Solution: Align the 25 of the outside scale with the inside scale’s
SPEED INDEX ( ) of the inside scale. The 6:00 is aligned with 15 and the answer
is 1500 gallons.
36
37
6. Maximum flying hours
Problem: With a fuel consumption rate of 220 gallons per hour and a fuel
supply of 550 gallons, what is the maximum number of flying hours?
Solution: Align the 22 of the outside scale with the inside scale’s
SPEED INDEX ( ). The 55 of the outside scale is now aligned with 2:30 and the
answer is 2 hours and 30 minutes.
38
39
B. General calculation functions
1. Multiplication
Problem: 20 x 15
Solution: Align 20 on the outside scale with 10 on the inside scale and read the
outside mark which is aligned with 15 of the inside scale. Figure the number of
decimal places and the answer is 300. Remember: decimal places cannot be read
on this scale.
40
41
2. Division
Problem: 250/20
Solution: Align 25 on the outside scale with 20 on the inside scale. On the
outside scale read the 12.5 mark that is aligned with 10 on the inside scale.
Figure the number of decimal places and the answer is 12.5
42
43
3. Reading ratios
Problem: 30/20 = 60/x
Solution: Align 30 on the outside scale with 20 on the inside scale. At this time,
the answer of 40 can be read from the inside scale corresponding to 60 on the
outside scale. In addition, the ratio of the value on the outside scale to the value
on the inside scale is 30:20 at all positions on the scale.
