Hi,

I am doing my PhD in Physics (electrical Physics) and I need to solve a transcendental equation (first time I met such a problem).

This equation comes from a physics article writen in 1974.

Here is the equation:

exp(E/kT) = s/B * (kT^2)/E

- k and s are some physcal constants (Boltzmann constant etc..)

- B is the temperature rate, given in "degre Kelvin/seconds" (known value)

- T is the temperature (in Kelvin)

- E is the energy

and from that I need to plot E versus T...?!

In the article, the author doesn't really say how he gets the graph but the solution/graph he shows is a linear line such as

E = CT - D

where C and D are some constants that he determines from the slope and the intercept with the y-axis.

So I would like to know how do I solve this equation and get this graph ? Do I need to use any program/algorythm..?

Thanks for your help !
