a = BesselJ[1, BesselJZero[0, 1]]/BesselJ[2, BesselJZero[0, 1]];

b = BesselJZero[0, 1]/2;

{a - b, 1/a - 1/b} // FullSimplify

{0, 0}

sub = {a -> b, 1/a -> 1/b};

1/(2 rho) (6 - (3 BesselJ[2, BesselJZero[0, 1]] BesselJZero[0, 1])/
     BesselJ[1, BesselJZero[0, 1]] + BesselJZero[0, 1]^2)  /. sub

BesselJZero[0, 1]^2/(2 rho)

Hi,

As a follow up, when I try

1/(2 rho) (6 - (3 BesselJ[2, BesselJZero[0, 1]] BesselJZero[0, 1])/
    BesselJ[1, BesselJZero[0, 1]] +
    BesselJZero[0, 1]^2) // FullSimplify

I don't get

1/2 BesselJZero[0, 1]

which is what it is!

Thanks again,

Sam
