#Area [m^2]
Ab = 0.00313659226
#CB Ratio
cb = 0.262
eng4 =[solve(cb == Vc/(Ab*Lb),Lb) for Vc in xrange(0.000001,0.00002)]
print(eng4)

This returns an empty list [] and I have no idea why. And this one:

#Ideal Gas Law[Relates Pressure and Volume]
#Definitions v3
#Main Tank Pressure[Pascals]
Pp=1013529.32 
#Tank Volume[m^3]
Vt=0.0013929
#Moles of Air
#Gas Constant
r=8.3144621
#Ambient Temperature[Kelvin][70F]
t= 294.261

eng5= solve(Pp*Vt == n*r*t,n,solution_dict=1)
v3=eng5[0]
v4=n(v3)
n(v4)

__main__:18: DeprecationWarning: Substitution using function-call syntax and unnamed arguments is deprecated and will be removed from a future release of Sage; you can use named arguments instead, like EXPR(x=..., y=...) See http://trac.sagemath.org/5930 for details. 75589949342674/131001015929725

Or it just shows the fraction. It's been acting weird lately

Why?

The problem is that xrange gives an empty list so the result is an empty list. Try this

import numpy as np
#Area [m^2]
Ab = 0.00313659226
#CB Ratio
cb = 0.262
Lb=var('Lb')
eng4 =[solve(cb == Vc/(Ab*Lb),Lb) for Vc in np.arange(0.0,0.00002,0.000001)]
print(eng4)

Sage is able to solve the problem if you declare n. I don't understand what you are trying to do after solving.

#Ideal Gas Law[Relates Pressure and Volume]
#Definitions v3
#Main Tank Pressure[Pascals]
Pp=1013529.32 
#Tank Volume[m^3]
Vt=0.0013929
#Moles of Air
#Gas Constant
r=8.3144621
#Ambient Temperature[Kelvin][70F]
t= 294.261
n=var('n')
eng5= solve(Pp*Vt == n*r*t,n,solution_dict=1)
v3=eng5[0]
print eng5

That works pretty well, but with 0 as the start it throws an empty list, which screws up my list comprehension. It works pretty well. Do you know about the other problem or why

I don't understand what you are trying to do after solving. What is n(V3) supposed to do? But now it does solve the equation.
