I need to write a program which does an iterative calculation, but holed over a value to use for an initial extimate. So far I have two functions and a table command. I think there should suffice, but the program is not cooperating. COuld someone tell me where I've gone wrong? Clear[denr]; denR[c]:= (V:=v; R=2*Pi*((G/(-(m*(V*c*p/Df)+-(V*(dH+cp*dT0))/(2*a*cp)))^.5)); {R} ) Clear[Vel]; Vel[c]:=(R:=denR; v= (4*Pi^2*Df*G)/(R^2*dT0*k); {v}) S:=0.007 V:=0.01 hooks:=Table[Vel[c],{c,0.001,0.05,0.0001}] All of the variables except V,v,R, and c are specified beforehand. I have no idea why this is not working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I really don't want to have to dig out Pascal (the laguage, not the dead mathematician ;) ). --------------------------------esp------------------------------------------ James Stepanek NRA,SAF Graduate Student Materials Science and Engineering Carnegie Mellon University God created mankind, Samuel Colt made them equal.
