[iPhone] Electrical ToolKit helps you calculate common physics and engineer equations with ease

Electrical ToolKit is an incredibly useful iPhone app developed by Niranjan Kumar. If you’ve ever needed a handy reference for calculating ohms, resistance, wattage, or anything else related to electrics, this handy app has got you covered.
Electrical ToolKit is designed to appeal to electricians, electrical engineers, science students, theatrical lighting designers, and more. You simply input your values, and the app does all the tricky calculations for you. Some of the calculations Electrical ToolKit can do include calculations related to Ohm’s Law, as well as Power Triangles and Star Delta Transformation.
Electrical ToolKit would have saved me hours of headaches in college. Part of my course work (and work study duties) revolved around lighting design for the Theatre Department. It was a ton of fun, but doing the calculations to make sure I wasn’t going to overload the circuits was also a stressful nightmare.
This app is designed to appeal to a wide variety of people who need to make calculations regarding electricity. Whether you’re baffled by series circuits, parallel circuits, resistors, or something else entirely, this handy app can probably help you. Ohm’s Law has never been so easy to deconstruct.
Thanks to a simple, straightforward look, this app is very easy to navigate. I also really appreciated the fact that each calculator tool is paired with a visual aid that illustrates things more clearly. Hooray for diagrams!
While Electrical ToolKit is clearly designed for a pretty niche crowd of people with a professional or academic connection to electricity, it may also be worth downloading for DIYers who want help with the tricky calculations that they might face when taking on home repair projects (or even parents who want to help their kids with a science fair project.) There are few bells and whistles to be had, but there are also few complaints. It’s a solid and helpful tool.
