Shot time calculator for Graphing Calculators

A coworker of mine told me of a radiography shot time program than can be used on graphing calculators (such as the Texas Instruments TI-83). You punch in the source to film distance, the curies you are using, etc, and it will calculate the shot time.

Does anyone know where I can find this program?

David,

I don't know about a calculator or computer software, but there is a slide ruler (those things we used before calcualtor LOL) for that purpose. It will calculate exposure for Ir192 and Co60. It should be available from your supplier.

Yeah, we have some of those. I think they are around $100 though.

A couple of our radiographers went through source retrieval class in Louisiana, and one of the other students there had a radiographic shot calculator on his TI-83 calculator. Maybe its on the net some place.

I'm still using the ruler, and I think it's really convenient. However I know guys from other lab, they make all calculations using this computer programm only.

Free Online TI-84 [url="http://graphingvariousfunctions.wordpress.com/2011/10/31/graphing-calculator-and-graphing-functions/"]Graphing Calculator for free[/url]?
I need one that is either...
--free and downloadable from a trustworthy source. (virus prevention purposes.)
or...
--free and non-downloadable and just available on a trusted website.

I need to be able to find the equation for the Line of Best Fit for a set of data, if that helps. Also, the equation for the L.o.B.F. is y=mx+b , correct?

Thanks-a-Bunch:)
