```I've used Solve below, but I had to do a couple of steps manually, first.

Erfc[L/(4*(Dg*t)^(1/2))] == 9/10;
%[[1,1]] == InverseErfc[Last[%]];
(#1^(-2) & ) /@ %;
Solve[%, t];
f[L_, Dg_] = t /. First[%]

L^2/(16*Dg*InverseErf[Infinity, -(9/10)]^2)

Plot[f[ell, 5*10^5], {ell, -10, 10}];

I wonder why Solve can't deal with the original equation?

Hi,

I have to solve this function:

Erfc[L/(4*(Dg*t)^(1/2))]= 0.9

Dg is constant.

Dg=5*10^5

I want to plot t as a function of L.

thanks.
