Another mathematica problem

  1. Apr 24, 2005 #1
    Hello again.

    I have a solution for a simple differenttial eqn. "Simpletreb=First@NDSolve[{phi''[t] == -d
    Sin[phi[t]], phi[0] == (3π/4), phi'[0] == 0}, phi[t], {t, 0, 1}]"

    After some plots and other calculations i need to find the value for phi at t=0.224511 so i input "phi[0.224511]/.simpletreb" but this just outputs "phi[0.224511]". I've also tried "Evaluate[phi[0.224511]/.simpletreb" with no joy.

    My .nb file is here: (you have to cut and paste the link i'm afraid) "http://bruce1711.150m.com/simple trebuchet (first) final.nb"

    Any ideas anyone???

    In general:

    solution=NDSolve[{y''[x]=such and such},y,{x,0,end}];


    Now, can use f[x] like any other function.

    Ok i tried that and i still get:
    "Evaulate[phi[0.22]]" as the answer instead of a value. :confused:

    Got it now thanks Saltydog. :smile:
