Re: 3 equations with 3 unknowns

Note that you are missing a few solutions...

Due to the guess values the solve block gave you just the first of each of four solutions.

With the expressions, it's easy to see what happens, e.g. if theta1 is varied:

Success!

Re: 3 equations with 3 unknowns

thanks but so complicated it should not be. It's simple physics calculation

Re: 3 equations with 3 unknowns

Hi again there are problems again with only 2 unknowns now.

Re: 3 equations with 3 unknowns

1) You forgot about the guess values

2) Your equal sign in the fist equation is a definition, but it should be a boolean equal

3) While playing around with your sheet I experienced strange results and the reason was Primes infamous auto labelling. You have to take care and look that all variables (especially m1' and m2') are labelled the same (either all "variable" or all automatic "-").

4) Its no problem in your sheet but using the apostrophe the way you did is at least a bit problematic as you may confuse it with the prime symbol of a derivation.

Worksheet in format P5 attached

Re: 3 equations with 3 unknowns

Thank you for your answer but I still get change values. I've done everything your said...

I send my document again.

Re: 3 equations with 3 unknowns

As Werner explained: this autolabellling feature of Prime has good and bad sides.

Notice that some of your m1 variables are labelled 'variable' and others are labelled '(variable)'. I'm afraid that makes them different. You should set the '(variable)' labels explicitly to 'variable'.

How about:

Oh, and by the way, given the units of your m' variables, they appear to be mass per unit of time quantities. So you probably chose the right notation, with the prime ('). Note however that prime notation is also used in solve blocks to solve differential equations using the odesolve() function instead of find().

Success!

Re: 3 equations with 3 unknowns

I don't think you understand me I can make it work the other way. But can't make it work with solve blocks. Thanks.
