Fairly new to Maple and having trouble with the result displayed when using exponential functions.
So I have the following function h(r), in which f1 - f5 are unknown constants that are to be calculated. [I am attempting to set up the equations needed to do so]:
h := r → exp(f1 + f2r + f3r2 + f4r3 + f5r4 + f6r5)
Firstly, I need to evaluate h(r) at the point A. But, on entering the evaluate command, the general expression for h is re-produced:
A := 0.2
Further, I need to take the natural logarithm of h(A), which produces:
How do I get Maple to output the actual result of the substitution of r=A and the logarithm?
i.e. how do I get maple to display:
f1 + 0.2f2 + 0.04f3 + 0.008f4 + 0.0016f5 + 0.00032f6
Apologies if this is a very basic question.
