Re: transpose


Paul,

solution = Solve[i == e/r, r]
resistance[e_, i_] = r /. Part[solution, 1]    giving...

{{r -> e/i}}
e/i



resistance[5.0, 2.3]
2.17391

Notice the double equal sign in the equation.

If you are a newbie I recommend taking some time to work through most of
Part I of The Mathematica Book, actually typing in commands and seeing that
they evaluate properly. This will give you a good idea of how Mathematica
works, the syntax and at least the basic commands available. This will save
a lot of time in the long run.

I am a newbie with a simple question.

I have an equation: i = e/r I want to solve the equation for r or e(it
doesn't matter which), symbolicaly. I know this is a difficult equation
;), but by starting simply I can figure out others.
Thanks,
Paul
