• # Mathematics for Instrumentation Technicians (FG02)

Length: 4 days
CEU Credits: 2.8
Course Hours: 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Certification of Completion: A Certificate of Completion indicating the total number of CEUs earned will be provided upon successful completion of the course.

### Description:

This course is specifically designed for the instrument technician who may be struggling with mathematical computations or those who need a basic refresher. The course is focused entirely on fundamental problems and solutions that an instrument tech continuously works with from entry to supervisory level experience. It also provides a good prerequisite for the various math calculations involved in other ISA training courses.

### You will be able to:

• Recognize the role that mathematics plays in a technician's daily duties
• Manipulate formulas to obtain unknown value(s)
• Define how and why to linearize an output
• Analyze and define a word problem and its related answers
• Manipulate very large (M, K) and very small numbers (Milli, Micro, Nano, Pico, Femto, Atto)

### You will cover:

Mathematical Concepts Used in Solving Instrumentation Questions and Validating Related Data

Logical Analysis Approach to Mathematical Problems

Calculations Regarding:  Validating the PV Input/Transmitter Output in Electronic and Pneumatic Instruments | Flow of Product through a Pipe Based on Area and Velocity | Elevated and Suppressed Zero Level Transmitter Corrections | Conversion of Metric Units to English Units and Vice Versa | Proportions, Ratios, and Percentages | Graphs and Logic Tables | Different Number Bases (Binary, Octal, Hex, Scientific Notations) | Density Based on Displacement | Specific Gravity and Density for Solids, Liquids, and Gases | Specific Gravity Affecting Level Measurement | Mathematical Validation of Level Based on Pressure

### Classroom/Laboratory Exercises:

• Fractions and formula review ratios
• Proportions and percentages
• Large and small number conversions
• Converting between number bases
