MathCAD not solving equations when there are untis

MathCAD not solving equations when there are untis

RE: MathCAD not solving equations when there are untis

My version of MathCAD doesn't open it... With SMath, I can have column values in an matrix with different unit values. Really neat feature.


RE: MathCAD not solving equations when there are untis

There appears to be a number of issues
> Inconsistent application of units -- when I apply your solution values from the first part into the second part, the equations have a 10^3 scale error
> Your two equations aren't really independent, which may be part of the problem -- when I remove B.width constraint from the first equation and replace B.width with its definition, I get q.u = 82.614 Pa, which isn't even close to your supposed solution without units
> the bottom line is that you are trying to solve for two variables with a single equation -- Mathcad's only fault is that it can't tell what's really wrong.
