BASIC ARITHMETHIC COMPARISON AND BOOLEAN CONTROL OPERATIONS IN LABVIEW ACTIVITY NO. 2 I. INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES At the end of this activity, the students shall be able to: 1. Distinguish between an Arithmetic and Comparison function. 2. Enumerate the operations under Arithmetic, Comparison and Boolean functions. 3. Create a useful VI that performs arithmetic and comparison operations in LabView. II. BACKGROUND INFORMATION One of the fundamentals LabView applications is in mathematical and engineering calculations. This platform allows the user to create a simple program using basic arithmetic functions and use the result of these programs to evaluate a certain scenario using Boolean and comparison function. The basic arithmetic functions in LabView include but not limited to addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square-root, reciprocal and many more. Of course, these function are the building blocks of program requiring elementary and advance calculations. Comparison operations however include, but it is not limited to equal, less than, greater than, greater than or equal, less than or equal, equal to, not equal to etc. The use of arithmetic and comparison function can be interconnected with how the result of arithmetic functions may be evaluated. Comparison functions may be used to compare numerical values to other numerical values such that the result of this comparison allows the program to interpret certain program specification. This interpretation may then be visually presented by a Boolean function such as LEDs. Boolean LEDs may be visually notify the user on the numeric output and this notification interprets something decisive or a quantity in range. However, there are Boolean functions that may be used as input. This includes, but not limited to toggle switch, slide witch, OK, Cancel, and STOP button. They may be refer to multiple states such as ON/OFF or TRUE or FALSE.

###### "Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
