Solve App bug? - cclinus - 07-10-2016 06:05 AM
Hi, I try to solve C for below equation with Solve App. ZC=1/(2*pi*FREQ*C) [attachment=3739] The problem is if the initial value of C is 100 , it can not solve the equation. Instead, it will display "Constant". [attachment=3740] If the initial value of C is 0.1. The answer is correct. [attachment=3741] [attachment=3742] Is it a bug? Thanks!

It's not a bug. If an initial guess is too far away from the solution, iterative methods may fail. It is always best to provide an initial guess as close to the solution as possible. |
