I'm very new to Mathematica, and I'm trying to solve a fairly complex system involving 3 non-linear implicit equations (Colebrook equations). I've tried just doing a Solve and NSolve function, but my Core 2 Duo @ 2.2GHz with 3 GB ram running on XP runs out of memory and can't produce anything. Here are my equations: 190200=999*V3^2/2-999*V1^2/2+33266.7*f3*V3^2+166533*f1*V1^2+14185.2*V3^2 180400=999*V2^2/2-999*V1^2/2+199800*f2*V2^2+166533*f1*V1^2+25874.1*V2^2 V1=V2+V3 1/sqrt(f1)=-2*log(2.7*10^-5+1.88*10^-4/(V1*sqrt(f1))) 1/sqrt(f2)=-2*log(2.7*10^-5+1.88*10^-4/(V2*sqrt(f2))) 1/sqrt(f3)=-2*log(2.7*10^-5+1.88*10^-4/(V3*sqrt(f3))) Variables: V1: should be in the range 0 < V1 < 20 V2: should be in the range 0 < V2 < 10 V3: should be in the range 0 < V3 < 10 f1: should be in the range 0 < f1 < 0.1 f2: should be in the range 0 < f2 < 0.1 f3: should be in the range 0 < f3 < 0.1 Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm stuck!!
