This tool helps you calculate the output of basic logic gates like AND, OR, and NOT based on your input values.

## How to Use the Logic Gate Calculator

1. This calculator allows you to compute the result of basic logic gates: AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR, and XOR.

2. To use the calculator, select the values of “Input A” and “Input B” by checking or unchecking the corresponding checkboxes. Note that the “NOT” gate only uses “Input A”.

3. Select the gate type from the dropdown menu.

4. Click on the “Calculate” button to see the result in the “Result” field.

## How it Calculates the Results

The calculator processes the inputs based on the selected gate type:

- AND: Produces 1 if both inputs are 1, otherwise 0.
- OR: Produces 1 if at least one input is 1, otherwise 0.
- NOT: Produces 1 if the input is 0, and 0 if the input is 1. (Only uses Input A)
- NAND: Produces 0 if both inputs are 1, otherwise 1.
- NOR: Produces 0 if at least one input is 1, otherwise 1.
- XOR: Produces 1 if only one of the inputs is 1, otherwise 0.

## Limitations

1. The “NOT” gate only uses “Input A”, so “Input B” will be ignored when this gate type is selected.

2. This calculator is purely for educational purposes and does not support complex logic gate combinations in a single calculation.

3. The inputs are restricted to binary values (represented by the checkboxes).

## Use Cases for This Calculator

### Use Case 1: Calculate AND Gate

Enter two inputs, 0 or 1, and the calculator will output 1 only if both inputs are 1. If one or both inputs are 0, the output will be 0. This is useful for determining if multiple conditions need to be met for an action to occur.

### Use Case 2: Calculate OR Gate

Input two values, and the calculator will output 1 if at least one input is 1. If both inputs are 0, the output will be 0. OR gates are commonly used in scenarios where multiple conditions can trigger an action.

### Use Case 3: Calculate NOT Gate

Input a single value of 1 or 0, and the calculator will output the opposite value. If you input 1, the output will be 0; if you input 0, the output will be 1. NOT gates are useful for inverting a signal.

### Use Case 4: Calculate NAND Gate

Provide two inputs, and the calculator will output the opposite of an AND gate. If both inputs are 1, the output will be 0; otherwise, the output will be 1. NAND gates are versatile and widely used in digital electronics.

### Use Case 5: Calculate NOR Gate

Enter two values, and the calculator will produce the opposite of an OR gate. If either or both inputs are 1, the output will be 0. NOR gates are helpful in scenarios where an action should be taken only when no condition is met.

### Use Case 6: Calculate XOR Gate

Input two values, and the calculator will output 1 only if the inputs are different (one input is 1 and the other is 0). If both inputs are the same, the output will be 0. XOR gates are used for exclusive conditions.

### Use Case 7: Calculate XNOR Gate

Provide two inputs, and the calculator will output 1 if both inputs are the same (either both 1s or both 0s). If the inputs differ, the output will be 0. XNOR gates are used to check for equality between two inputs.

### Use Case 8: Combine Gates

Create complex logic by combining different gates within the calculator. You can chain gates together to build intricate logic circuits and visualize the outcomes based on various input combinations.

### Use Case 9: Simulate Logic Circuits

Use the calculator to simulate logic circuits and test different scenarios. You can experiment with various gate combinations to understand how they function together and predict the output based on different input values.

### Use Case 10: Educational Tool

Utilize the calculator as an educational tool to learn about logic gates and digital electronics. By interacting with the calculator, you can grasp the fundamental principles of digital logic and enhance your understanding of how computers process information.
