    Solve for the age of the universe as a function of scale factor in a cosmology with [itex]\Omega_{M}=0.3[/itex], [itex]\Omega_{\Lambda}[/itex]=0.7.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution


    At this point, Maple seems unable to do this integral, and I am stuck. Any tips?

    Errr... Nevermind, I got it to work eventually.
