```Hi!
Mma can't find f (the frequency) for a value of yd, my HP48GX find it
within 6 seconds!

yd is the Real part of the root of (r+sl)sc

r changes with f, the same with l. c and d are constants

s is jw (complex)

This is the Mma run:
yd := (20*d*Re[Sqrt[(r + l*s)*s*c]])/Log[10]

s := f*I*2*Pi

r := (((f*2*Pi)^1.198*2.18)/10^9 + 0.276)*1000

l := (587 - (f*92.37)/10^6)/10^6

c = 50/10^9

d=3.5

FindRoot[yd == 71, {f, 300000, 30000, 1.1*10^6}]

FindRoot::"frjc":
"Could not symbolically find the Jacobian of
{-71+0.0170395 Re[<<1>>]}. Try giving two starting
values for each variable."
(I've tried Solve,Nsolve also)

If I then set f to 714880 (from my HP48GX)
f:=714880

yd

71.0002

So if I put in the ansewer Mma gives the right result of yd!
How should I Solve this?
