I wanted to solve this complex expression for L,

Solve[(1/(R + (1/Iwc)) + (1/(R + IwL)))^-1 == R, L]

where I is sqrt(-1)

and mathematica is out putting {}. Does anyone know what this output means? or how to solve such an expression with mathematica.

Thanks for your help

    $\begingroup$ IwL is not the same thing as I w L or I*w*L. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Lichtblau Feb 15 '16 at 17:56
