Beside the possibility to calculate the distance by using the warp factor and time given in an episode, it is important as well to calculate the time for several warp factor, provided that the distance is already known, for instance in order to consider if also a freighter would have been able to travel a certain distance in an acceptable time, how long it would last to cross a sector, how long it takes to travel to a real star etc.

Please simply enter the given distance and warp factor in the below Javascript form and click on "Calculate" to determine the needed time. For calculating, the program uses the physical standard formulas and the rather exact formula

warp^(10/3)+(10-warp)^(-11/3)

However, there are great discrepancies above warp 9.6, therefore inputs above that speed are invalid.
