Can the Peng-Robinson EOS be solved explicitly for T?

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question, but it arose as part of an engineering problem, so here goes.

The Peng-Robinson EOS is as follows:

[itex]P=\frac{RT}{v-b}-\frac{a[1+k(1-\sqrt{\frac{T}{T_{c}}}]^{2}}{v(v+b)+b(v-b)}[/itex]

I'm just wondering if this equation can be solved explicity for T. I tried but I had no luck.

Presumably T is a positive value. Replace T with t2. That'll let you pull it out of the square root. Solve the resulting quadratic for t...

Okay, I figured it out. Thank you gneill!
