Trying to write a physics question where the variables change. The abbreviated (after spending several hours trying the actual one) formula and the response from D2L when I test it are:

Original Formula

0.009*{q3}*((-{q1}*(ABS({x1})/SQRT({x1}^2+{y3}^2))/({x1}^2+{y3}^2)))

Actual Formula

0.009*30.0*((-35.0*(ABS(6.00)/SQRT(6.00^2+20.0^2))/(6.00^2+20.0^2)))

Solution

Error: Infinity value returned

I tried the exact formula in excel and it returned a finite number. Is there someone who sees what I am doing wrong?

Thanks.

I think I found my error. I used SQRT instead of SQR for square root. Thanks.
