    How can I make a plot of this function?

    Hi,
    I want to make a plot of this function:
    h(t) = (0.04*pi)/(4*pi)*sqrt(9.8)*(t+(h*t)/2)+2
    t most be between 0 and 60.
    I have tried to make the plot, but it gives an error... I simply dont know how to do it.
    Anyone can help me please?

    Thanks everyone

    I don't understand what you have written- and probably your graphing sofware didn't either! You have h(t) on the left and "h*t" on the right. Is that h on the right the same as the h on the left? If so do you mean "t+ h(t)" or "t+ h(t)t"? Or is the h on the right simply a number? Obviously, no graphing software is going to accept the same name for a constant inside a function definition as you have given to the function itself!

    If the h on the right really is the function h(t), you will need to solve for h so you do not have an h in the definition. Exactly how you do that depends on whether that is "t+ h(t)" or "t+ h(t)t".
