 Given an equationSolve[{0.00006*(0.4 + 4*6*0.4^2.5/(0.2^2.5 + 0.4^2.5)) - 11.5*10^-6 ==5*10^-6*[Cv + 4*6*Cv^2.5/(0.2^2.5 + Cv^2.5)]}, {Cv}]and I use the solve function to solve Cv and I getSyntax::sntxf: "5*10^-6*" cannot be followed by "[Cv+4*6*Cv^2.5/(0.2^2.5+Cv^2.5)]".Syntax::tsntxi: "[Cv+4*6*Cv^2.5/(0.2^2.5+Cv^2.5)]" is incomplete; more input is needed.Syntax::sntxi: Incomplete expression; more input is needed.Can you help me?

 You have syntax error. Replace [] with () And while at it, not good idea to start variables with UpperCase since these are meant for use by MathematicaSolve[{0.00006*(0.4 + 4*6*0.4^2.5/(0.2^2.5 + 0.4^2.5)) - 11.5*10^-6 == 5*10^-6*(cv + 4*6*cv^2.5/(0.2^2.5 + cv^2.5))}, cv]{{cv -> 0.06437393881 - 0.1981458609 I}, {cv -> 0.06437393881 + 0.1981458609 I}, {cv -> 223.2363212}, {cv -> 223.2363224}}
