You can easily calculate the speed using the formula below to create such a chart in excel
true_speed = radar_speed / Cos(angle)
Edit: Corrected typo caught by memtek
I've rescanned the document and is better.
Nope, I'm sure it was a typo on your behalf. Correct is:Originally Posted by ahmadr
radar_speed = true_speed * Cos(angle)
It appears to be better than radar?
how so u read this and what is the term mean?
It basically means that unless a LEO is standing directly in front of a speeding car (0 degrees), the speed the gun will show will be less than what the car is actually doing.
For example, if the car is doing 70, and the LEO were standing 60 degrees off the side of the road, the gun will read 35 MPH. If he were standing 20 degrees, the gun will read 65.
I'm pretty sure this is just a typo error.Originally Posted by ELVATO
