    Where A and C are constants. Is there any analytic to solve for B?

    There is no analytic solution. The problem can be simplified to be:
    sin(x)/x=k, where x=B/C and k=1/A. When dealing with real values for x and k, |k|>1 has no solution.

    That's what I suspected. Thanks for confirming.
