Solve App bug?
Hi,

I try to solve C for below equation with Solve App.
ZC=1/(2*pi*FREQ*C)
   

The problem is if the initial value of C is 100 , it can not solve the equation. Instead, it will display "Constant".
   

If the initial value of C is 0.1. The answer is correct.
   
   

Is it a bug?
Thanks!

RE: Solve App bug?
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.
