Indeterminate?

Well, I guess you might be right. It would certainly be difficult to determine the energy consumed in overcoming the slide friction. But it never required forced cooling even when used intensively -- there was a time when I could perform maybe two operations per second!

No! No cooling at all, just like SSD's, it's an SSL (Super Slide Rule) & at 2 per sec it must've been one of the newfangled nylon composite coated ones. Much faster than the wood!!

But precision is fixed at just slightly below 10 bits!
