the exercise 1.6 in "structure and interpretation of computer programs" goes into a infinite loop. Any ideas?

as i use the "new-if" provided in this exercise instead of "if" ,the "sqrt-iter" goes into infinite loop. when i print the "guess" , it print the right answer again and again. i can't figure out why. Help~~

Thats because of applicative avaluation method. In this case all arguments of new-if should be evaluated which leads to infinite evaluation of sqrt-iter.
