FORMULA

a(n) = floor(10^n*sqrt(prime(n)))-10*floor(10^(n-1)*sqrt(prime(n))).

EXAMPLE

sqrt(2)=1.4142135... -> the 1st decimal digit is 4;

sqrt(3)=1.7320508... -> the 2nd decimal digit is 3;

sqrt(5)=2.2360679... -> the 3rd decimal digit is 6, etc.

MAPLE

A071901 := proc(n) local p; p := ithprime(n) ; Digits := p+3 ; floor(10^n*sqrt(p)) mod 10 ; end proc: seq(A071901(n), n=1..120) ; # R. J. Mathar, Nov 17 2009

ndd[n_]:=Module[{rd=RealDigits[Sqrt[Prime[n]], 10, Prime[n]]}, Drop[ rd[[1]], rd[[2]]][[n]]]; Array[ndd, 110]

PROG

(PARI) A071901(n) = {local(r, x, d); r=sqrtint(prime(n)); x=100*(prime(n)-r^2);

for(digits=1, n, d=0; while((20*r+d)*d <= x, d++);

d--; /* while loop overshoots correct digit */

x=100*(x-(20*r+d)*d); r=10*r+d); d} \\ Michael B. Porter, Dec 11 2009
