# University Laboratory (Guide)/Calculators

Since some of the calculations used in the laboratory can be rather involved, this page contains a few calculators to make things easier.

## Circulate a draft of your findings

### Research gain from Circulate a draft of your findings

This form calculates the amount of research you would gain from playing the card.

 template = Template:Calculator/Research Gain from Draft
form = DraftResearchGain
result = DraftResearchGainResult
param = researched|Research done|200|int|200-15000
param = required|Total research required|0|int|1-15000
param = results|Number of Unexpected Results|0|int|0-777


### Research threshold from Circulate a draft of your findings

At some point, you reach the threshold where playing the card would put you over your . This form calculates that threshold (provided that the number of your doesn't change before reaching the threshold, of course). An easy to remember approximation is that the gain is about 10 * (the fraction of the project you've finished) * (Unexpected Results+10), e.g. 7.5*(s+10) if you're about 75% done. (See spreadsheet.)

 template = Template:Calculator/Research Threshold from Draft
form = DraftResearchThreshold
result = DraftResearchThresholdResult
param = required|Total research required|0|int|1-15000
param = results|Number of Unexpected Results|0|int|0-777


## Collated Research

This calculates how much you would get upon Tidying up your University Lab.

The formula is (0.6 × ) + (0.6 × ) + (0.2 × ) + (0.2 × ) (rounded down).

 template = Template:Calculator/Collated Research from Lab
form = CollatedResearch
result = CollatedResearchResult
param = epiphanies|Unavoidable Epiphanies|0|int|0-777
param = ideas|Unwise Ideas|0|int|0-777
param = connections|Unlikely Connections|0|int|0-777
param = results|Unexpected Results|0|int|0-777


## Correspondence

The gain from Discover what is mandated/Write to your Secret College for help is logistic with as the input and scaled by :

${\displaystyle {\frac {\mathrm {Eq} }{9}}\times \left[5+{\frac {35}{1+e^{-{\frac {1}{2}}\cdot (\mathrm {ASotC} -12)}}}\right]}$
 template = Template:Calculator/Research Gain from Correspondence
form = CorrespondenceResearch
result = CorrespondenceResult
param = equipment|Equipment|7|int|1-9
param = asotc|A Scholar of the Correspondence|1|int|1-21
