Solving Systems of Equations in Mathcad Using the Find Function
By Mathcad Staff
About this worksheet:
Uses PTC Mathcad’s Find function to get a solution to a system of equations given by a solve block
Used across all industries, specifically in an academic nature in this worksheet
Performs with solve blocks, linear and non linear systems, initial guess values, conjugate gradients, quasi-Newton, and complex solutions
This worksheet shows you how to use the Find Function in PTC Mathcad software. The Find Function in PTC Mathcad can be used to solve linear and nonlinear systems. A solve block is defined with guess values and equations. Constraints can also be added. The solution can vary with different inputs. The guess value can change the results in problems where there are multiple solutions.
This worksheet points out easy ways to check for errors within the equations and software. Errors can mean that the problem has no solutions or contains equations that are not defined at all points.This worksheet provides you with step by step instruction on how to use the Find Function and how to avoid errors. Graphs, equations, formulas, and images are all included to help aid you.
