Hi, I am trying to solve a non-linear equation for one variable but it's not working. Can somebody help me in this regards? your help would be highly appreciated. Thanks

if

temp=[24 78 139 194 297 397];

yieldstress=[45 36 37 33 30 28];

syms DD positive

solve((6.046.*sqrt(DD))./(1e6)+(9.79.*(1-((-4.7872e-5.*temp).*(log(6.667e-4./(286.*sqrt(DD))))).^(2/3)).^(3/2)).*(3.06) == yieldstress);

end

If you want to solve for multiple values of temp and yieldstress, you will have to use a for loop.

for i=1:numel(temp)

for j=1:numel(yieldstress)

out{i,j} = solve((6.046.*sqrt(DD))./(1e6)+(9.79.*(1-((-4.7872e-5.*temp(i)).*(log(6.667e-4./(286.*sqrt(DD))))).^(2/3)).^(3/2)).*(3.06) == yieldstress(j));

end

end

The output variable "out" contains the values of DD that solve the equations as symbolic numbers (so long as the equation can be solved), and these can be evaluated using the command eval().

The left-hand side of your equation (6.046.*sqrt(...)...) is a scalar, the right-hand side (yieldstress) is a vector. This is not compatible.
