Thank you so much!!!! You made my day

]]>Welcome to the forum.

Cube root both sides

note: cube root of 0.8 is approximately 0.9283.

On a calculator press the y^x button (some calcs show incorrectly as x^y) with (1/3) as the y value.

ie. 0.8 y^x (1/3)

Hope that's what you need.

]]>I forgot most of my math from school and uni and now I want to calculate the mesh size of a porous gel.

I came up with this equation:

x^3 = 0.8 (a+x)^3

I measured all values for a using nanoindentation so I need to solve this equation for x.

Could anybody help please?

Thanks a lot
