SMath Solver Problem

SMath Solver Problem

RE: SMath Solver Problem

maybe better to attach the input file.....

RE: SMath Solver Problem

Deleting out the units from all of the variables (q, L) allow the solve command to run. I'm not sure why the units are stopping the solve command from working, it looked like they were balanced to me. I believe that's where the error is though.

Shotzie... will try that... units are balanced but could be a program issue. Thanks...

Shotzie... attached.



Thanks, Dik

Thanks IRS... that was the case for the solve.

RE: SMath Solver Problem

After skimming this forum post Link it appears that adding 'ft to the x variable will allow the solve command to run, although I don't believe it will assign units to the "res" variable you've set. I've updated your previously attached file with the change. Not sure if this is the best way to solve the problem but seems to be a workaround for now.

will try that... again, thanks

Shotzie... missed that, thanks.
