I'm trying to
       calculate the Equation of Time (EoT) to determine the difference

       Time.  Then I want to plot the EoT curve (a project for later, not
       now)The following is the formula I use on my calculator.  The formula
       gives a "close enough" EoT9.87xsin(2x360(3-81)÷365)-7.67 x sin(360(3-81)÷365+78.7)=
       -4.584625249 (or.... -4 minutes 35.1 or minus)Calc doesn't give the same 
answer.  Here's the formula in 
calc;=9.87*SIN(RADIANS(2*360*(3-81)/365)-7.67*SIN(RADIANS(360*(3-81)/365+78.7)))The answer it 
returns is: -2.14883666659093Can you tell me what the correct layout of the format in calc is?Thank
