    I've arrived at a solution for a problem, but it doesn't match the back of the book. It's a pretty involved problem, so I don't want to replicate it here, but I feel like my work is pretty solid. Does anyone know if there's an errata available for Marion and Thornton's "Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems", 5th ed?

    I don't believe so, but there is a solutions manual available somewhere online.

    Thanks Sentin3l, I've got the solutions manual. Luckily it doesn't go into too many details on the solutions leaving me to make it work. It turned out that the problem I was having was due to me cutting corners on the math; I wrote the entire monster out and discovered that some things canceled that hadn't before.
