E6B Flight computer:

enter image description here

During my practice test, I tried to use the wikipedia provided equations to calculate Density Altitude and ended up with different results than the E6B. In this case, it looks like the E6B uses something like 130FT/DegC as opposed to posted 118.8 indicated on Wikipedia.

Is there a source for the actual equations and constant values they used for the values on the E6B?
