(Remember "star trek is fiction and there is no warp drive or warp factor. This calculator is like the "big bang theory", all science fiction.)
Warp Factor Calculator is a Java Script calculator that computes speed as a function of "warp factor" in multiples of the speed of light.
The program is operated by selecting the series version using the radio buttons, entering a "warp factor" number that is greater than 0, and then pressing the Calculate button. All entries are cleared by pressing the Clear button. If the "warp factor" is too large, the output windows will display:
NaN -- Not a Number

The Star Trek universe neglects relativistic effects. Time has the same rate for both fixed and moving objects.
For the original Classic Star Trek series, the warp equation is generally accepted to be:
V = C * W3in which,
C -- the speed of light ~3 x 108 meters per second. W -- the warp factor V -- velocity through spaceFor Star Trek: The Next Generation, the generally accepted warp scale has changed. Warp 10 is infinite speed that cannot be reached. Here the following is used for the warp equation:
V = C * W3.3333 + f(W)in which,
f(W) = -0.5 log10(10 - W), if 9.0 < W <= 10.0 f(W) = 0, otherwiseNot everyone will agree on this definition. However, it has the advantages of being both simple and elegent.
This calculator allows you to either find the speed corresponding to a certain warp factor, or the warp factor corresponding to a certain speed. Results may vary in accuracy and are limited by the precision of your software. (Remember "star trek is fiction and there is no warp drive or warp factor. This calculator is like the "big bang theory", all science fiction.)
To find what speed corresponds to a certain warp factor, enter the warp factor and press "Find speed." Results will be displayed in multiples of the speed of light and will always be exact.
To find what warp factor corresponds to a certain speed, enter the speed (in multiples of the speed of light) and press "Find warp." Results from this calculation may vary in accuracy due to the methods used to determine them. To check the accuracy, press "Find speed" once the warp factor has been displayed to see if the result is close to the speed you originally entered.
The calculator determines the speed according to the warp scale used in Star Trek: The Next Generation; Deep Space 9; and Voyager. Warp speeds in the original series were based on a different scale.

The speed of light in a vacuum is 299,792,458 m/s.
Warp factors are calculated using Newton's method with up to 20 iterations.
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
An example of fine-tuning of the universe by GOD: If the mass and energy of the early universe were not evenly distributed to an incomprehensible precision of 1 part in 10^10^123, the universe would be hostile to life of any kind. This is an extraordinary figure. One could not possibly even write the number down in full, in our ordinary denary (power of ten) notation: it would be one followed by ten to the power of 123 successive zeros!
(That is a million billion billion billion billion billion billion billion billion billion billion billion billion billion zeros.)
