Unformatted text preview: Week 6, 7: 2.5 Wronskian 3.1 Intro, Slope Fields, verify solution 3.2 Separable DE 3.3 Exact Equations 3.4 Linear Equations 3.6 Cooling/Mixing 2 Problem 1: Verify that the function y = c 1 x is a solution of y = y 2 x Solution: Compute y and check. y = c 1 ( 1 2 ) x- 1 2 . y 2 x = c 1 x 2 x = c 1 ( 1 2 ) x ( x ) 2 = c 1 ( 1 2 ) 1 x = y . Problem 2: Determine all values r so y = e rx is a solution to y- 4 y + 3 y = 0 . 4 Main Step: to solve linear DE dy dx + p ( x ) y = q ( x ) multiply by the integral factor f = e R p dx and use d dx ( fy ) = f ( y + py ) on the left to get d dx ( fy ) = fq. Problem: Solve dy dx + 2 x (1- x 2 ) y = 4 x,- 1 x 1 . Solution: Find integral factor, inside integral first: Z 2 x (1- x 2 ) dx =- ln(1- x 2 ) = ln ( (1- x 2 )- 1 ) (simplify!). So e R 2 x ( 1- x 2 ) dx = e ln ( (1- x 2 )- 1 ) = ( 1- x 2 )- 1 = 1 1- x 2 = f. Multiply by f = 1 1- x 2 and use Main Property: 1 1- x 2 dy dx + 2 x (1- x 2 ) y = 4 x 1- x 2 , d dx y 1- x 2 = 4 x 1- x 2 . Now integration gives y 1- x 2 = (- 2 ln (1- x 2 )) + c, so y = (1- x 2 ) (- ln ((1- x 2 ) 2 ) + c ) ....
