Version 3.0 of Ballistic Energy Calc was released!

It's been a while since the last release. The app now has updated translations and supports metric calculation. The translations might not be perfect, but they should be decent. Feel free to send me suggestions and bug reports. Thanks!

Alcohol Party Calculator is Now Available! (finally)



Need to know what bottle of booze has the most amount of alcohol in it for the cheapest price?

How about the amount of alcohol that you will need for a party?

You can calculate both with this app!

The cost volume analysis portion of the app will accept a volume (metric or English units), a proof (0-200), and a price (currency does not matter). It will then tell you the cost per unit of pure alcohol. For example, a 750ml bottle of 80 proof for $10 will cost 3.3 cents per ml of pure ethanol. Likewise, a 64oz bottle of 90 proof for 15 euros would cost .52 euros per ounce of pure ethanol.

The party estimator portion of the app will tell you how much alcohol you need for a party. Just fill out all of the input boxes and use the slider to move the average BAC (how drunk you want people to get) to whatever you desire. Please be aware that this is an average and that each person is responsible for the amount they consume (some people may drink more than others). This will give you an ESTIMATE of the alcohol required based on the algorithm for determining BAC. The output is in liters because most liquor is bottled in .75 or 1.75 L containers.

This app is available to everybody for educational/recreational use. Please follow all applicable drinking laws.

This app has a FREE VERSION as well as a PREMIUM VERSION. The free version has ads, the premium version does not. Please consider donating to my beer/pizza fund by downloading the premium version :)

Version 2.0 - Available

I released version 2.0 a few weeks ago. It added functionality for calculating momentum and for accepting mass as a decimal. The source is also available at GitHub (same repo as the previous version).

I have received requests for accepting metric units. I will consider doing this in the future (no promises). I am busy working on another app which I hope to release before the end of the year.

It's been a while since I have posted on here. I have received two suggestions for improving the ballistic calculator. I will try to incorporate these in an update within the next 6 months.

  1. Accept the weight in grains as a decimal.
  2. Calculate momentum. 
UPDATE: This functionality is available in version 2.0!

Update: Ballistic Energy Calc

I've been very busy with school, job applications, and other activities since the initial release. I have finally found the time to work on updating my app. The update was released on December 24th.

What's new in v1.1:
  •    Bug fix- No longer crashes when fields are left empty
  •    Now available in all locales
In the next update I am considering adding functionality for decimal value weight and velocity inputs. I also hope to introduce the option to use SI (metric) units of measure in future updates. I can't say when or if I will be able to release another update due to time constraints and the possibility of restrictions in any employee contract that I may end up signing in the next several months.

I appreciate everybody who has given me feedback on the app. I will continue to value suggestions for improvement.
