What is the rotating ring on wrist watches?

The purpose of rotating watch bezels, which are often associated with scuba diving, is to keep track of elapsed time, or to make other measurements, such as average speed or distance traveled. Rotating bezels take advantage of a watch's primary function--timekeeping-- to allow the wearer to keep track of something other than just the hours, minutes and seconds of the day. Definition A bezel is the ring that surrounds the dial, or face, of a watch. Commonly constructed of gold, gold plate or stainless steel, the bezel may be adorned with diamonds on a jewelry watch. On sports watches, it often has calibrated markings and the ability to rotate in either one or two directions. Although rotating watch bezels perform timekeeping functions, the primary purpose of the bezel is to hold the crystal covering the face of the watch in place. Unidirectional Bezel As the name indicates, a unidirectional bezel is one that rotates in only one direction--counterclockwise. This type of rotating bezel is often used for scuba diving. Prior to submerging, a scuba diver with 45 minutes of air in his tank could turn the bezel so either the zero mark or the 45 mark is showing, depending if it is a count-up or countdown gauge. That lets the diver know how much air is left with a quick glance at the watch, rather than subtracting the starting time from the current time to determine how many minutes have elapsed or how many minutes of air are left. The bezel on a diver's watch is often ratcheted to prevent it from accidentally being knocked out of its original position, which could be disastrous for the wearer. Bidirectional Bezel This type of bezel moves both clockwise and counterclockwise, enabling it to be used either for mathematical calculations or for measuring how much time has elapsed or how much time is remaining. Tachymeter Watches with a rotating bezel that serves as a tachymeter help the wearer calculate their speed of movement based on travel time. For example, the wearer starts the chronograph, or stopwatch function, at a mile indicator and at the next mile indicator the point on the scale where the second hand lies shows his or her miles per hour speed. It can be used with any unit of distance, as its purpose is simply to measure units traveled by hour. Slide Rule A slide rule bezel features logarithmic or other scales on the watch face's outer edge, enabling the wearers to perform mathematical calculations. The rotating bezel is marked with one scale and is slid around the stationary scale to make calculations of various types, which depend on the watch. Some models are designed for calculating how much fuel an airplane has used or the fuel weight.

What is elapsed time in math?

elapsed time = 11:45 to 12:45 so you look at is 11:45 so what you do is you do you add one hour and it ============ 12:45

How do you find out the mph traveled or nauticle miles using a casio mtp 4700 tachyometer function in otherwords what does the rotating bezel do and how do i set it to see the mph or nauticle miles?

The rotating bezel is for helping you adjust the offset from when you start timing for the tachyometer, with the 60 marking being the start where you start timing.Tachyometers will not worry about what units you use. It is designed to measure rates, and it will ALWAYS be units-per-hour. You time how long it takes to do something (either traveling a given distance, making something, or some other action) within one minute, and the moment you stop, the stopwatch/tachyometer seconds hand will point the rate on the bezel. If you wish to verify the rate, it's (number of seconds equal to or less than 1 minute divided by 3600*)*3600 seconds is one hour.

How much time has elapsed between Letter 1 and Letter 2 of Frankenstein?

4 months-haha

How do you find the deceleration rate?

The same as the acceleration rate. Measure the speed at one moment of time, measure the speed at another moment of time, calculate the difference, divide by the time elapsed.

Who is the musher to have the longest time for a Red Lantern Award?

It was John Schultz in 1973 with an elapsed time of 32 days, 15 hours, nine minutes and one second.

Which one is better a timer or a stopwatch?

It depends. A timer counts down, and is useful if you want a time limit. A stopwatch keeps track of the elapsed time, which means it counts up.

Is there a place on earth that is one side day time and one side night time?

Yep. The earth is always rotating so if it is the middle of the earth, then you will see that there is.

What can you use as a backup velocity meter?

In place of a velocity meter (speedomoeter), one can use a stopwatch or clock to measure the time elapsed to cover a fixed distance.

What are two things that can determine one's blood alcohol level beside the amount of alcohol consumed?

Contents of stomach and time elapsed since last drink consumed.
