Re: Solve for the variable L?Hi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20121025 19:24:43
Re: Solve for the variable L?This is very interesting because your first equation with the "1 +" gives me an incorrect value, but your second equation with the "1 " gives me the correct value!!! So I'm surmising that the 2nd equation is the correct one that will always work??? And, could you please direct me to the type of math you used to obtain your results? Is this algebra, calculus or what??? #4 20121025 19:29:50

Re: Solve for the variable L?Yes, Quadratic Equations are like that. See the first example here: Mathematical Models 2 "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
