    can i ignore E since its a constant? I got something like,
    [tex] x = /frac{-6r^6A + 12B}{2r^13} t^2 [\tex]

    The minimum is the point at which dV/dr=0

    I'm getting the ridiculous value of :

    r = [tex]\sqrt[6]{\frac{-12B}{6A}}[/tex]

    by deriving the two quotients, allowing A' and B' to cancel in the process (constants) cancelling out the high denominators as much as possible... etc..
