# What is wrong with this code • ### Question

• Here is a peice of code from my program on small basic. What is wrong

Time:
TextWindow.WriteLine("What is the Mass of object One, in Kg")
TextWindow.WriteLine("Thank, now what is the Distance between the two object, in metres")
"g"=((1/Distance*Distance)/6.674*10^-11)*Mass1
"T"=Math.SquareRoot(2*Distance/g)
TextWindow.WriteLine("Thank you, the time it will take to have contact is "+T+" seconds")

It says  "g" unexpected at this location

and "T" unexpected at this location

I have tried many things

• Variables can't be surrounded by quotation marks.

So,  "g"=((1/Distance*Distance)/6.674*10^-11)*Mass1

should be,  g =((1/Distance*Distance)/6.674*10^-11)*Mass1

### All replies

• You define g and T as variables in your code so you can not write them in "..." here.
