    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Hey guys.
    I have this equation in red (in the pic) which I need to solve

    As you can see I came up with with 2*t0.
    When I solve it in Matematica I come up with t2=t0 without the 2.
    Also, their answer in the book is also only t0.
    Can someone please tell me where is my mistake please?


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Everything looks good until the final line. Why have you suddenly changed from T = t2 to T = 2t0? What is t0? How does it relate to t2?
