A typical application of the Multiply/Divide object is power measurement. When you measure the voltage over a load and the current through it, you can calculate the power by multiplying both measurements.
To control the behavior of the Multiply/Divide I/O, several properties are available. These can be accessed through a popup menu which is shown when the I/O is right clicked.
The */ mask determines which sources are in the nominator (default) and which sources are in the denominator. This mask contains a '*' or '/' character for every connected source. By default, the mask consists of '*'-es only and all sources are multiplied. To divide by a source, set its corresponding mask character to '/'.
Some examples of */ masks are shown in the table below:
|1||/||1 / src1|
|2||**||src1 * src2|
|2||*/||src1 / src2|
|2||/*||src2 / src1|
|2||//||1 / (src1 * src2)|
|3||*//||src1 / (src2 * src3)|
|6||*/*//*||(src1 * src3 * src6) / (src2 * src4 * src5)|
