Hi Maria,

First, your <pi> in <i==pi/12> must be <Pi>, I guess. Then, you list several
functions separated by a comma, and ContourPlot does not understand. This
works, for instance:

 2*R3*Sin[ArcCos[Re[x/R3]]]*e3 +
  2*R2/Cos[i]*Sin[ArcCos[Re[x/2.92]]]*(e2 - e3) +
  2*R1/Cos[i]*Sin[ArcCos[Re[x/R1]]]*(e1 - e2), {x, -2, 2}, {y, -20,

What did you mean by separating functions with a comma - what did you try to
achieve? Knowing this it would be easier to help.
