I want to solve H for N=[1:7]. This however results in the warnings ''Warning: 7 equations in 1 variables.'' and ''Warning: Explicit solution could not be found.'' I've tried using a for loop but I need to plot (N, H) and with a loop the values of H overwrite eachother. Is there a way to solve H for different values of N?

Multiplying with the denominator
you get a polynomial of degree 4 in the unknown H.
Specify numerical values for the known constants and use "roots" to solve.

Best wishes
