Solve for u*
No worries, just found out that you're not suppose to solve it algebraically, you're suppose to read the answer off a graph. Thanks for anyone who was trying it though.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I might just be being stupid but i cant solve the following equation for u*:

10/u* = 5.75log(80u*/1.5x10^-5) + 5.5

Could anyone offer some help??

Yes, there is no algebraic way to solve this one.
