I have a question about using a InterpolatingFunction obtained
by NDSolve as a usual function.

I posted similar questions ealier last month, and received
much help to which I am very grateful.

First I ran:


Then I got:

  {{c->InterpolatingFunction [...], w->InterpolatingFunction [...]}}

Next I ran, using the above result:

  NDSolve[{k'[t]==0.715c[k[t]]+... /. %..%[[1]],k[0]==0.3},k,{t,0,40}]

Then I successfully (with the helpful suggestions from MathGroup) got

  {{k->InterpolatingFunction [...]}}

Now there is a problem that I can not solve.
I want to look at how c[k[t]] moves as t moves from 0 to 40.

I found in page212 of the last edition of 'Mathematica' book
the following command and tried it.

		k /. First[%]

which allowed me to plot k[t] by:


When I similarly tried to plot c[k[t]] by:

       ^this is supposed to mean c[k] obtained by 
           c/. First[%]
        immediately after getting {c->InterpolatingFunction[ ]}

Then I got a very strange looking plot together with some
error messages.

Can anybody suggest what went wrong?
