Struggling to Isolate a Variable

  1. Sep 8, 2009 #1

    I am trying to find a way to isolate the variable Tc in the following equation:

    ln p(t) = A + (B(Tc - T)^m)[1 + C*cos(w*log(Tc - T) + d)]

    I believe that there is a way to solve for Tc, probably using an identity that I have not been able to find.

    Thanks for the help

    Forget it.

    This is a trancendental equation; you cannot find an explicit expression for Tc
