Scroll down to the "Tips" section. Either int cannot find a solution or none exist.

Even if you substitute in exact numeric values for all of the symbolic variables except t, you are unlikely to arrive at a formula that has a closed form solution. There might be some special cases with some of the constants being 0 perhaps.
