Oh! Now I see that I wasn’t clear with “with the above” (sorry about that!); by that I meant all the way up to the x,y solution for non-negative y (this is why I cut into the post mid-sentence, so that t’s introduction would be below rather than above); or, in other words, up to the following:

(It seems to me that the x>0,y=0 portion is missing.)

Even with some edge cases, I still prefer dimensionless solution

Yes — I’m glad my getting another chance to write lets me express my appreciation for seeing the t=x/y approach (or t=y/x)! I enjoyed imagining a line going through the origin with the slope varying, and thinking how that related to the problem (and your given solution set for t).
