Is it possible to solve any of these equations? $\displaystyle x = A[1-\cos (\omega t)]-\frac{Bt^{2}}{2}$ (Find t(x)) $\displaystyle A\cos (2\tau )-B(\cos \tau -\tau \sin \tau )=0$ (Find $\displaystyle \tau $)

The Taylor Series expansion of cos(wt) may produce acceptable results. Numerica methods, given specific values of A and B, certainly would produce acceptable results.
Yes, I don't have numerical values for A and B, but since $\displaystyle \omega t$ is between 0 and pi/2 I think the Taylor expansion is a good one.
