    From q=Fx/uA:

    - Multiply both sides by u to get:
    qu=Fx/A

    - Then divide both sides by q to get:
    u=Fx/Aq

    Hope it helps. And it might be an idea to be polite mate, not every question can get answered with 30 mins!

    Bumping after just a few minutes is against the PF rules (see the Rules link at the top of the page). You must wait at least 24 hours before you use a single bump if the thread has no replies.
