# 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[edit]

### Research gain from Circulate a draft of your findings[edit]

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[edit]

At some point, you reach the threshold where playing the card would put you over your Total Lab Research Required. This form calculates that threshold (provided that the number of your Unexpected Result 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*( URs+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[edit]

This calculates how much Volume of Collated Research you would get upon Tidying up your University Lab.

The formula is (0.6 × Unavoidable Epiphany) + (0.6 × Unwise Idea) + (0.2 × Unlikely Connection) + (0.2 × Unexpected Result) (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[edit]

The Laboratory Research gain from Discover what is mandated/Write to your Secret College for help is logistic with A Scholar of the Correspondence as the input and scaled by Equipment:
