Unformatted text preview: rec is ion? Volodymyr Kindratenko says: "32-bit floating-point" = "s ingle-prec is ion floating-point" Sep 04 Sep 05
Saurabh Mishra says: In ques tion 6, when it s ay s , "The root c aus e of the Ariane 5 roc k et failure was is olated to the c onvers ion of a floating
point number, whic h s tored the horiz ontal c omponent of the roc k et's veloc ity , to a 16-bit s igned integer" how many
bits is the floating point number? Geoffrey Herman says: Sep 05 You may as s ume that the s y s tem was us ing the s tandard 32-bit IEEE 754 floating point notation. In general, if
y ou s tate y our as s umptions , y ou s hould be good to go. Abhimanyu Khandelw al says: Sep 05 W hy is there a differenc e between the ex ponent of the normalaliz ed and the denormaliz ed repres entation ? W hat is
the s ignific anc e of it being normaliz ed/ denormaliz ed ?
- If normaliz ed, its value is : (− 1)s × 1.frac tion × 2ex ponent-127
- If denormaliz ed, its value is : (− 1)s × 0.frac tion × 2-126
Regarding IEEE 754 Volodymyr Kindratenko says:...
