 Author Comment/Response KurtVega 07/26/11 05:01am "Solve" seems to fail finding the upper limit to this given integral: Solve[Integrate[ Sqrt[(1 - (6.8 x)/E^(4 x^2) + (2 x)/ Sqrt[1 + 4 x^2])^2 + (-1 - (6.8 x)/E^(4 x^2) + (2 x)/ Sqrt[1 + 4 x^2])^2], {x, -1.5, b}] == 0, b, Reals] Basically I want to find the upper limit 'b' given a lower limit (here -1.5) and a curve segment length (here 0, for simplicity). However, I haven't found a way to make this work (used NSolve and NIntegrate without luck). I need to do this for a lot of upper limits - please don't tell me I need to manually find them by trial and error, because that would take hours! :) TIA for your help! URL: ,
