// Programmer: Doug Hogan // Date: 9/13/08 // Description: This program is a demonstration of using loops to solve // an equation that is otherwise algebraically difficult. // The equation used here applies to problem 3-37 in // Hibbeler's Statics text. // The equation we're trying to solve is // 4(sin t)(cos t) - 4(sin t) + (cos t) = 0 #include <iostream> #include <math.h> using namespace std; const double PI = 3.1415926; // ratio of circum to diameter of any circle
