3. From y = c1 x + c2 x ln x we ﬁnd y = c1 + c2 (1 + ln x). Then y(1) = c1 = 3, y (1) = c1 + c2 = −1 so that c1 = 3
and c2 = −4. The solution is y = 3x − 4x ln x.
4. From y = c1 + c2 cos x + c3 sin x we ﬁnd y = −c2 sin x + c3 cos x and y = −c2 cos x − c3 sin x. Then y(π) =
c1 − c2 = 0, y (π) = −c3 = 2, y (π) = c2 = −1 so that c1 = −1, c2 = −1, and c3 = −2. The solution is
y = −1 − cos x − 2 sin x.
5. From y = c1 + c2 x2 we ﬁnd y = 2c2 x. Then y(0) = c1 = 0, y (0) = 2c2 · 0 = 0 and hence y (0) = 1 is not
possible. Since a2 (x) = x is 0 at x = 0, Theorem 3.1 is not violated.
6. In this case we have y(0) = c1 = 0, y (0) = 2c2 · 0 = 0 so c1 = 0 and c2 is arbitrary. Two solutions are y = x2
and y = 2x2 .
7. From x(0) = x0 = c1 we see that x(t) = x0 cos ωt + c2 sin ωt and x (t) = −x0 sin ωt + c2 ω cos ωt. Then
x (0) = x1 = c2 ω implies c2 = x1 /ω. Thus
x1
x(t) = x0 cos ωt +
sin ωt.

8. Solving the system
x(t0 ) = c1 cos ωt0 + c2 sin ωt0 = x0
x (t0 ) = −c1 ω sin ωt0 + c2 ω cos ωt0 = x1
for c1 and c2 gives
c1 =
Thus ωx0 cos ωt0 − x1 sin ωt0

sin ω(t − t0 ).
ω x(t) = 9. Since a2 (x) = x − 2 and x0 = 0 the problem has a unique solution for −∞ < x < 2. 99 3.1 Preliminary Theory: Linear Equations 10. Since a0 (x) = tan x and x0 = 0 the problem has a unique solution for −π/2 < x < π/2.
11. (a) We have y(0) = c1 + c2 = 0, y (1) = c1 e + c2 e−1 = 1 so that c1 = e/ e2 − 1 and c2 = −e/ e2 − 1 . The
solution is y = e (ex − e−x ) / e2 − 1 .
(b) We have y(0) = c3 cosh 0 + c4 sinh 0 = c3 = 0 and y(1) = c3 cosh 1 + c4 sinh 1 = c4 sinh 1 = 1, so c3 = 0 and
c4 = 1/ sinh 1. The solution is y = (sinh x)/(sinh 1).

13. From y = c1 ex cos x + c2 ex sin x we ﬁnd y = c1 ex (− sin x + cos x) + c2 ex (cos x + sin x).
(a) We have y(0) = c1 = 1, y (0) = c1 +c2 = 0 so that c1 = 1 and c2 = −1. The solution is y = ex cos x−ex sin x.
(b) We have y(0) = c1 = 1, y(π) = −eπ = −1, which is not possible.
(c) We have y(0) = c1 = 1, y(π/2) = c2 eπ/2 = 1 so that c1 = 1 and c2 = e−π/2 . The solution is y =
ex cos x + e−π/2 ex sin x.
(d) We have y(0) = c1 = 0, y(π) = c2 eπ sin π = 0 so that c1 = 0 and c2 is arbitrary. Solutions are y = c2 ex sin x,
for any real numbers c2 .
14. (a) We have y(−1) = c1 + c2 + 3 = 0, y(1) = c1 + c2 + 3 = 4, which is not possible.
(b) We have y(0) = c1 · 0 + c2 · 0 + 3 = 1, which is not possible.
(c) We have y(0) = c1 · 0 + c2 · 0 + 3 = 3, y(1) = c1 + c2 + 3 = 0 so that c1 is arbitrary and c2 = −3 − c1 .
Solutions are y = c1 x2 − (c1 + 3)x4 + 3.
(d) We have y(1) = c1 + c2 + 3 = 3, y(2) = 4c1 + 16c2 + 3 = 15 so that c1 = −1 and c2 = 1. The solution is
y = −x2 + x4 + 3.
15. Since (−4)x + (3)x2 + (1)(4x − 3x2 ) = 0 the set of functions is linearly dependent.
16. Since (1)0 + (0)x + (0)ex = 0 the set of functions is linearly dependent. A similar argument shows that any set
of functions containing f (x) = 0 will be linearly dependent.
17. Since (−1/5)5 + (1) cos2 x + (1) sin2 x = 0 the set of functions is linearly dependent.
18. Since (1) cos 2x + (1)1 + (−2) cos2 x = 0 the set of functions is linearly dependent.
19. Since (−4)x + (3)(x − 1) + (1)(x + 3) = 0 the set of functions is linearly dependent.
20. From the graphs of f1 (x) = 2 + x and f2 (x) = 2 + |x| we
see that the set of functions is linearly independent since
they cannot be multiples of each other. 21. Suppose c1 (1 + x) + c2 x + c3 x2 = 0. Then c1 + (c1 + c2 )x + c3 x2 = 0 and so c1 = 0, c1 + c2 = 0, and c3 = 0.
Since c1 = 0 we also have c2 = 0. Thus, the set of functions is linearly independent.
22. Since (−1/2)ex + (1/2)e−x + (1) sinh x = 0 the set of functions is linearly dependent. 100 3.1 Preliminary Theory: Linear Equations 23. The functions satisfy the diﬀerential equation and are linearly independent since

24. The functions satisfy the diﬀerential equation and are linearly independent since

for 0 < x < ∞. The general solution on this interval is
y = c1 x3 + c2 x4 .
28. The functions satisfy the diﬀerential equation and are linearly independent since

33. The functions y1 = e2x and y2 = xe2x form a fundamental set of solutions of the associated homogeneous

34. The functions y1 = x−1/2 and y2 = x−1 form a fundamental set of solutions of the associated homogeneous
1
equation, and yp = 15 x2 − 1 x is a particular solution of the nonhomogeneous equation.

35. (a) We have yp1 = 6e2x and yp1 = 12e2x , so
yp1 − 6yp1 + 5yp1 = 12e2x − 36e2x + 15e2x = −9e2x .
Also, yp2 = 2x + 3 and yp2 = 2, so
yp2 − 6yp2 + 5yp2 = 2 − 6(2x + 3) + 5(x2 + 3x) = 5x2 + 3x − 16.
(b) By the superposition principle for nonhomogeneous equations a particular solution of y − 6y + 5y =

solution is y = c1 x3 + c2 x2 + c3 x + c4 .
(d) By part (a), the general solution of y = 0 is yc = c1 x + c2 . Since D2 x2 = 2! = 2, yp = x2 is a particular
solution of y = 2. Thus, the general solution is y = c1 x + c2 + x2 .
(e) By part (b), the general solution of y = 0 is yc = c1 x2 + c2 x + c3 . Since D3 x3 = 3! = 6, yp = x3 is a
particular solution of y = 6. Thus, the general solution is y = c1 x2 + c2 x + c3 + x3 .
(f ) By part (c), the general solution of y (4) = 0 is yc = c1 x3 + c2 x2 + c3 x + c4 . Since D4 x4 = 4! = 24, yp = x4
is a particular solution of y (4) = 24. Thus, the general solution is y = c1 x3 + c2 x2 + c3 x + c4 + x4 .
38. By the superposition principle, if y1 = ex and y2 = e−x are both solutions of a homogeneous linear diﬀerential

2 3.2 Reduction of Order 39. (a) From the graphs of y1 = x3 and y2 = |x|3 we see
that the functions are linearly independent since they
cannot be multiples of each other. It is easily shown
that y1 = x3 is a solution of x2 y − 4xy + 6y = 0. To
show that y2 = |x|3 is a solution let y2 = x3 for x ≥ 0
and let y2 = −x3 for x < 0.
(b) If x ≥ 0 then y2 = x3 and
W (y1 , y2 ) =
If x < 0 then y2 = −x3 and
W (y1 , y2 ) = x3
3x2 3x2 x3 −x3 2 3x x3 −3x2 = 0. = 0. This does not violate Theorem 3.3 since a2 (x) = x2 is zero at x = 0.
(c) The functions Y1 = x3 and Y2 = x2 are solutions of x2 y − 4xy + 6y = 0. They are linearly independent
since W x3 , x2 = x4 = 0 for −∞ < x < ∞.
(d) The function y = x3 satisﬁes y(0) = 0 and y (0) = 0.
(e) Neither is the general solution on (−∞, ∞) since we form a general solution on an interval for which
a2 (x) = 0 for every x in the interval.
40. Since ex−3 = e−3 ex = (e−5 e2 )ex = e−5 ex+2 , we see that ex−3 is a constant multiple of ex+2 and the set of
functions is linearly dependent.
41. Since 0y1 + 0y2 + · · · + 0yk + 1yk+1 = 0, the set of solutions is linearly dependent.
42. The set of solutions is linearly dependent. Suppose n of the solutions are linearly independent (if not, then the
set of n + 1 solutions is linearly dependent). Without loss of generality, let this set be y1 , y2 , . . . , yn . Then
y = c1 y1 + c2 y2 + · · · + cn yn is the general solution of the nth-order diﬀerential equation and for some choice,
c∗ , c∗ , . . . , c∗ , of the coeﬃcients yn+1 = c∗ y1 + c∗ y2 + · · · + c∗ yn . But then the set y1 , y2 , . . . , yn , yn+1 is

y = 2ue2x + u e2x , y = e2x u + 4e2x u + 4e2x u, and y − 4y + 4y = e2x u = 0. Therefore u = 0 and u = c1 x + c2 . Taking c1 = 1 and c2 = 0 we see that a second solution is y2 = xe2x . 103 3.2 Reduction of Order 2. Deﬁne y = u(x)xe−x so

y + 16y = (cos 4x)u − 8(sin 4x)u = 0 or u − 8(tan 4x)u = 0. If w = u we obtain the linear ﬁrst-order equation w − 8(tan 4x)w = 0 which has the integrating factor
e−8 tan 4x dx = cos2 4x. Now

e6 cot 3x dx = sin2 3x. Now d
[(sin2 3x)w] = 0 gives (sin2 3x)w = c.

y − y = (cosh x)u + 2(sinh x)u = 0 or u + 2(tanh x)u = 0. If w = u we obtain the linear ﬁrst-order equation w + 2(tanh x)w = 0 which has the integrating factor
e2 tanh x dx = cosh2 x. Now d
[(cosh2 x)w] = 0
dx gives (cosh2 x)w = c. Therefore w = u = c sech2 x and u = c tanh x. A second solution is y2 = tanh x cosh x = sinh x.

y = 5e5x u + e5x u , y = e5x u + 10e5x u + 25e5x u 104 3.2 Reduction of Order and
y − 25y = e5x (u + 10u ) = 0 or u + 10u = 0. If w = u we obtain the linear ﬁrst-order equation w + 10w = 0 which has the integrating factor
e10 dx = e10x . Now Therefore w = u = ce−10x d 10x
[e w] = 0 gives e10x w = c.

If w = u we obtain the linear ﬁrst-order equation w + 6 w = 0 which has the integrating factor
6y + y − y = ex/3 (6u + 5u ) = 0 e(5/6) dx = e5x/6 . Now d 5x/6
w] = 0
[e
dx gives e5x/6 w = c. Therefore w = u = ce−5x/6 and u = c1 e−5x/6 . A second solution is y2 = e−5x/6 ex/3 = e−x/2 .

By (11) the general solution is y = c1 cosh x + c2 sinh x. For y = c1 ex + c2 e−x the boundary conditions
imply c1 + c2 = 1, c1 e − c2 e−1 = 0. Solving for c1 and c2 we ﬁnd c1 = 1/(1 + e2 ) and c2 = e2 /(1 + e2 )
so y = ex /(1 + e2 ) + e2 e−x /(1 + e2 ). For y = c1 cosh x + c2 sinh x the boundary conditions imply c1 = 1,
c2 = − tanh 1, so y = cosh x − (tanh 1) sinh x.

44. The auxiliary equation should have one positive and one negative root, so that the solution has the form
y = c1 ek1 x + c2 e−k2 x . Thus, the diﬀerential equation is (a).
45. The auxiliary equation should have a pair of complex roots α ± βi where α < 0, so that the solution has the
form eαx (c1 cos βx + c2 sin βx). Thus, the diﬀerential equation is (e).
46. The auxiliary equation should have a repeated negative root, so that the solution has the form y =

47. The diﬀerential equation should have the form y + k 2 y = 0 where k = 1 so that the period of the solution is
2π. Thus, the diﬀerential equation is (d).
48. The diﬀerential equation should have the form y + k 2 y = 0 where k = 2 so that the period of the solution is

equation. Hence another solution must be y2 = e−4x sin x. Now dividing the polynomial m3 + 6m2 + m − 34 by
m − (−4 + i) m − (−4 − i) = m2 + 8m + 17 gives m − 2. Therefore m3 = 2 is the third root of the auxiliary

54. The auxiliary equation is m2 + α = 0 and we consider three cases where λ = 0, λ = α2 > 0, and λ = −α2 < 0:
Case I When α = 0 the general solution of the diﬀerential equation is y = c1 + c2 x. The boundary conditions
imply 0 = y(0) = c1 and 0 = y(π/2) = c2 π/2, so that c1 = c2 = 0 and the problem possesses only the trivial
solution.
Case II When λ = −α2 < 0 the general solution of the diﬀerential equation is y = c1 eα x + c2 e−α x , or
alternatively, y = c1 cosh α x + c2 sinh α x. Again, y(0) = 0 implies c1 = 0 so y = c2 sinh α x. The second
boundary condition implies 0 = y(π/2) = c2 sinh α π/2 or c2 = 0. In this case also, the problem possesses only
the trivial solution.
When λ = α2 > 0 the general solution of the diﬀerential equation is y = c1 cos α x + c2 sin α x.
In this case also, y(0) = 0 yields c1 = 0, so that y = c2 sin α x. The second boundary condition implies
0 = c2 sin α π/2. When α π/2 is an integer multiple of π, that is, when α = 2k for k a nonzero integer, the Case III problem will have nontrivial solutions. Thus, for λ = α2 = 4k 2 the boundary-value problem will have nontrivial
solutions y = c2 sin 2kx, where k is a nonzero integer. On the other hand, when α is not an even integer, the
boundary-value problem will have only the trivial solution.

the original integrand is an exponential function and does not require integration by parts for its evaluation.
Similarly, if k = 1, f (x) = 0 and f (x) has the form f (x) = ax+b. In this case a single application of integration
by parts will suﬃce. Finally, if k > 1, the solution of the diﬀerential equation is

Solving this system we ﬁnd c1 = 6 and c2 = −6 cot 1. The solution of the boundary-value problem is

38. We have yc = ex (c1 cos x + c2 sin x) and we assume yp = Ax + B. Substituting into the diﬀerential equation we
ﬁnd A = 1 and B = 0. Thus y = ex (c1 cos x + c2 sin x) + x. From y(0) = 0 and y(π) = π we obtain

43. (a) From yp = Aekx we ﬁnd yp = Akekx and yp = Ak 2 ekx . Substituting into the diﬀerential equation we get
aAk 2 ekx + bAkekx + cAekx = (ak 2 + bk + c)Aekx = ekx ,
so (ak 2 + bk + c)A = 1. Since k is not a root of am2 + bm + c = 0, A = 1/(ak 2 + bk + c).
(b) From yp = Axekx we ﬁnd yp = Akxekx +Aekx and yp = Ak 2 xekx +2Akekx . Substituting into the diﬀerential
equation we get
aAk 2 xekx + 2aAkekx + bAkxekx + bAekx + cAxekx
= (ak 2 + bk + c)Axekx + (2ak + b)Aekx
= (0)Axekx + (2ak + b)Aekx = (2ak + b)Aekx = ekx
where ak 2 +bk +c = 0 because k is a root of the auxiliary equation. Now, the roots of the auxiliary equation
√
are −b/2a ± b2 − 4ac /2a, and since k is a root of multiplicity one, k = −b/2a and 2ak + b = 0. Thus
(2ak + b)A = 1 and A = 1/(2ak + b).
(c) If k is a root of multiplicity two, then, as we saw in part (b), k = −b/2a and 2ak + b = 0. From yp = Ax2 ekx
we ﬁnd yp = Akx2 ekx + 2Axekx and yp = Ak 2 x2 ekx + 4Akxekx = 2Aekx . Substituting into the diﬀerential
equation, we get
aAk 2 x2 ekx + 4aAkxekx + 2aAekx + bAkx2 ekx + 2bAxekx + cAx2 ekx

= (0)Ax2 ekx + 2(0)Axekx + 2aAekx = 2aAekx = ekx .
Since the diﬀerential equation is second order, a = 0 and A = 1/(2a).
44. Using the double-angle formula for the cosine, we have
sin x cos 2x = sin x(cos2 x − sin2 x) = sin x(1 − 2 sin2 x) = sin x − 2 sin3 x. 121 3.4 Undetermined Coeﬃcients Since sin x is a solution of the related homogeneous diﬀerential equation we look for a particular solution of the
form yp = Ax sin x + Bx cos x + C sin3 x. Substituting into the diﬀerential equation we obtain
2A cos x + (6C − 2B) sin x − 8C sin3 x = sin x − 2 sin3 x.
Equating coeﬃcients we ﬁnd A = 0, C = 1

(b) f (x) = e−x . We see that yp → ∞ as x → ∞ and yp → ∞ as x → −∞.
(c) f (x) = sin 2x. We see that yp is sinusoidal.
(d) f (x) = 1. We see that yp is constant and simply translates yc vertically.
46. The complementary function is yc = e2x (c1 cos 2x + c2 sin 2x). We assume a particular solution of the form
yp = (Ax3 + Bx2 + Cx)e2x cos 2x + (Dx3 + Ex2 + F )e2x sin 2x. Substituting into the diﬀerential equation and
using a CAS to simplify yields
[12Dx2 + (6A + 8E)x + (2B + 4F )]e2x cos 2x

yields
(−8A + 24B) cos x + 3Bx sin x = 2 cos x − 3x sin x.
This implies −8A + 24B = 2 and −24B = −3. Thus B = 122 1

27. The auxiliary equation is 3m2 −6m+30 = 0, which has roots 1±3i, so yc = ex (c1 cos 3x+c2 sin 3x). We consider
ﬁrst the diﬀerential equation 3y − 6y + 30y = 15 sin x, which can be solved using undetermined coeﬃcients.
Letting yp1 = A cos x + B sin x and substituting into the diﬀerential equation we get
(27A − 6B) cos x + (6A + 27B) sin x = 15 sin x.
Then
27A − 6B = 0 and 6A + 27B = 15, 9

28. The auxiliary equation is m2 − 2m + 1 = (m − 1)2 = 0, which has repeated root 1, so yc = c1 ex + c2 xex .
We consider ﬁrst the diﬀerential equation y − 2y + y = 4x2 − 3, which can be solved using undetermined
coeﬃcients. Letting yp1 = Ax2 + Bx + C and substituting into the diﬀerential equation we get
Ax2 + (−4A + B)x + (2A − 2B + C) = 4x2 − 3.
Then
A = 4, −4A + B = 0, and 2A − 2B + C = −3, so A = 4, B = 16, and C = 21. Thus, yp1 = 4x2 + 16x + 21. Next we consider the diﬀerential equation

for Problem 18 is (−1, 1). In Problem 24 the general solution is
y = c1 cos(ln x) + c2 sin(ln x) + cos(ln x) ln | cos(ln x)| + (ln x) sin(ln x)
for −π/2 < ln x < π/2 or e−π/2 < x < eπ/2 . The bounds on ln x are due to the presence of sec(ln x) in the
diﬀerential equation.
30. We are given that y1 = x2 is a solution of x4 y + x3 y − 4x2 y = 0. To ﬁnd a second solution we use reduction
of order. Let y = x2 u(x). Then the product rule gives
y = x2 u + 2xu and y = x2 u + 4xu + 2u,
so
x4 y + x3 y − 4x2 y = x5 (xu + 5u ) = 0.
Letting w = u , this becomes xw + 5w = 0. Separating variables and integrating we have

4c1 + 8c2 = 8
4c1 + 12c2 = 0
from which we ﬁnd c1 = 6 and c2 = −2. Thus

40. If 1 − i is a root of the auxiliary equation then so is 1 + i, and the auxiliary equation is
(m − 2)[m − (1 + i)][m − (1 − i)] = m3 − 4m2 + 6m − 4 = 0.
We need m3 − 4m2 + 6m − 4 to have the form m(m − 1)(m − 2) + bm(m − 1) + cm + d. Expanding this last
expression and equating coeﬃcients we get b = −1, c = 3, and d = −4. Thus, the diﬀerential equation is
x3 y − x2 y + 3xy − 4y = 0. 41. For x2 y = 0 the auxiliary equation is m(m − 1) = 0 and the general solution is y = c1 + c2 x. The initial
conditions imply c1 = y0 and c2 = y1 , so y = y0 + y1 x. The initial conditions are satisﬁed for all real values of
y0 and y1 .
For x2 y − 2xy + 2y = 0 the auxiliary equation is m2 − 3m + 2 = (m − 1)(m − 2) = 0 and the general solution
is y = c1 x + c2 x2 . The initial condition y(0) = y0 implies 0 = y0 and the condition y (0) = y1 implies c1 = y1 .
Thus, the initial conditions are satisﬁed for y0 = 0 and for all real values of y1 .
For x2 y − 4xy + 6y = 0 the auxiliary equation is m2 − 5m + 6 = (m − 2)(m − 3) = 0 and the general solution
is y = c1 x2 + c2 x3 . The initial conditions imply y(0) = 0 = y0 and y (0) = 0. Thus, the initial conditions are
satisﬁed only for y0 = y1 = 0.

integer or where x = eπ/2+kπ . Solving π/2 + kπ = 0.5 we get k ≈ −0.34, so eπ/2+kπ < 0.5 for all negative
integers and the graph has inﬁnitely many x-intercepts in the interval (0, 0.5). 141 3.6 Cauchy-Euler Equation 43. The auxiliary equation is 2m(m − 1)(m − 2) − 10.98m(m − 1) + 8.5m + 1.3 = 0, so that m1 = −0.053299,
m2 = 1.81164, m3 = 6.73166, and
y = c1 x−0.053299 + c2 x1.81164 + c3 x6.73166 .

y = c1 x1.40819 + x−1.20409 [c2 cos(2.22291 ln x) + c3 sin(2.22291 ln x)].
45. The auxiliary equation is m(m − 1)(m − 2)(m − 3) + 6m(m − 1)(m − 2) + 3m(m − 1) − 3m + 4 = 0, so that

m1 = m2 = 2 and m3 = m4 = − 2 . The general solution of the diﬀerential equation is

that m1 = m2 = 3 + 2i and m3 = m4 = 3 − 2i. The general solution of the diﬀerential equation is
y = x3 [c1 cos(2 ln x) + c2 sin(2 ln x)] + x3 ln x[c3 cos(2 ln x) + c4 sin(2 ln x)].
47. The auxiliary equation
m(m − 1)(m − 2) − m(m − 1) − 2m + 6 = m3 − 4m2 + m + 6 = 0
has roots m1 = −1, m2 = 2, and m3 = 3, so yc = c1 x−1 + c2 x2 + c3 x3 . With y1 = x−1 , y2 = x2 , y3 = x3 , and
the identiﬁcation f (x) = 1/x, we get from (10) of Section 4.6 in the text
W1 = x3 , W2 = −4, W3 = 3/x, and W = 12x. Then u1 = W1 /W = x2 /12, u2 = W2 /W = −1/3x, u3 = 1/4x2 , and integration gives

17. We need to solve [1 + (y )2 ]3/2 = y . Let u = y so that u = y . The equation becomes (1 + u2 )3/2 = u or
(1 + u2 )3/2 = du/dx. Separating variables and using the substitution u = tan θ we have

(y )2 − y 2 = sin2 x − sin2 x = 0.
When y = e−x , y = −e−x , y = e−x , and
(y )2 − y 2 = e−2x − e−2x = 0.
From (y )2 − y 2 = 0 we have y = ±y, which can be treated as two linear equations. Since linear combinations
of solutions of linear homogeneous diﬀerential equations are also solutions, we see that y = c1 ex + c2 e−x and
y = c3 cos x + c4 sin x must satisfy the diﬀerential equation. However, linear combinations that involve both
exponential and trigonometric functions will not be solutions since the diﬀerential equation is not linear and each
type of function satisﬁes a diﬀerent linear diﬀerential equation that is part of the original diﬀerential equation.
19. Letting u = y , separating variables, and integrating we have

u = y = sinh(x + c1 ), y = cosh(x + c1 ) + c2 , and y = sinh(x + c1 ) + c2 x + c3 . 20. If the constant −c2 is used instead of c2 , then, using partial fractions,

linear function x = c1 t + c2 . Thus, for large time, the restoring force will have decayed to the point where the
spring is incapable of returning the mass, and the spring will simply keep on stretching.
16. As t becomes larger the spring constant increases; that is, the spring is stiﬀening. It would seem that the
oscillations would become periodic and the spring would oscillate more rapidly. It is likely that the amplitudes
of the oscillations would decrease as t increases.

q(t) = 6e−20t − 2e−60t .
Setting q = 0 we ﬁnd e40t = 1/3 which implies t < 0. Therefore the charge is not 0 for t ≥ 0.

3q + 10q + 30q = 300 we obtain q(t) = e−3t (c1 cos 3t + c2 sin 3t) + 10. The initial conditions q(0) = q (0) = 0 imply c1 = c2 = −10. Thus
q(t) = 10 − 10e−3t (cos 3t + sin 3t) and i(t) = 60e−3t sin 3t. Solving i(t) = 0 we see that the maximum charge occurs when t = π/3 and q(π/3) ≈ 10.432.

q(t) = −0.012e−50t + 1.4te−50t + 0.012 and i(t) = 2e−50t − 70te−50t . Solving i(t) = 0 we see that the maximum charge occurs when t = 1/35 second and q(1/35) ≈ 0.01871 coulomb.

From Problem 50, then
ip (t) ≈ 4.1603 sin(60t + φ)
where sin φ = −X/Z and cos φ = R/Z. Thus tan φ = −X/R ≈ −0.6667 and φ is a fourth quadrant angle. Now
φ ≈ −0.5880 and
ip (t) = 4.1603 sin(60t − 0.5880). 52. Solving 1 q + 20q + 1000q = 0 we obtain qc (t) = e−20t (c1 cos 40t + c2 sin 40t). The steady-state charge has the

Z = X 2 + R2 and X = Lγ − 1/Cγ. Since E0 is constant the amplitude will be a maximum when Z is
a minimum. Since R is constant, Z will be a minimum when X = 0. Solving Lγ − 1/Cγ = 0 for γ we obtain

γ = 1/ LC . The maximum amplitude will be E0 /R.

55. By Problem 50 the amplitude of the steady-state current is E0 /Z, where Z = X 2 + R2 and X = Lγ − 1/Cγ.
Since E0 is constant the amplitude will be a maximum when Z is a minimum. Since R is constant, Z will be a
minimum when X = 0. Solving Lγ − 1/Cγ = 0 for C we obtain C = 1/Lγ 2 .

(100 − γ 2 )A sin γt + (100 − γ 2 )B cos γt = 100 sin γt.
Equating coeﬃcients we obtain A = 100/(100 − γ 2 ) and B = 0. Thus, qp (t) =

Now y = c1 and y (0) = 0 implies c1 = 0. Then y = c2 and y (π) = 0. Thus, λ = 0 is an eigenvalue with
corresponding eigenfunction y = 1.
For λ = α2 > 0 we have
y = c1 cos αx + c2 sin αx.
Now
y (x) = −c1 α sin αx + c2 α cos αx
and y (0) = 0 implies c2 = 0, so
y (π) = −c1 α sin απ = 0

When n = 2k − 1 is odd, the eigenvalues are (2k − 1)2 /4. Since cos(2k − 1)π/2 = 0 and sin(2k − 1)π/2 = 0,

The boundary conditions imply
y(0) = c1 = 0
y(5) = c2 e−5 sinh 5α = 0
so c1 = c2 = 0 and the only solution of the boundary-value problem is y = 0.
For λ = 0 we have
y = c1 e−x + c2 xe−x
and the only solution of the boundary-value problem is y = 0.
For λ = α2 > 0 we have
y = e−x (c1 cos αx + c2 sin αx) .
Now y(0) = 0 implies c1 = 0, so

5α = nπ or λ = α2 = Now y = c1 and y (0) = 0 implies c1 = 0. Then y = c2 and y (1) = 0. Thus, λ = −1 is an eigenvalue with
corresponding eigenfunction y = 1.
For λ > −1 or λ + 1 = α2 > 0 we have
y = c1 cos αx + c2 sin αx.
Now
y = −c1 α sin αx + c2 α cos αx
and y (0) = 0 implies c2 = 0, so
y (1) = −c1 α sin α = 0
gives
α = nπ, λ + 1 = α 2 = n2 π 2 , or λ = n2 π 2 − 1, n = 1, 2, 3, . . . . The eigenvalues n2 π 2 − 1 correspond to the eigenfunctions cos nπx for n = 0, 1, 2, . . . . 162 3.9 Linear Models: Boundary-Value Problems 17. For λ = α2 > 0 a general solution of the given diﬀerential equation is
y = c1 cos(α ln x) + c2 sin(α ln x).
Since ln 1 = 0, the boundary condition y(1) = 0 implies c1 = 0. Therefore
y = c2 sin(α ln x).
Using ln eπ = π we ﬁnd that y (eπ ) = 0 implies
c2 sin απ = 0
or απ = nπ, n = 1, 2, 3, . . . . The eigenvalues and eigenfunctions are, in turn,
λ = α 2 = n2 , n = 1, 2, 3, . . . and y = sin(n ln x). For λ ≤ 0 the only solution of the boundary-value problem is y = 0.
18. For λ = 0 the general solution is y = c1 + c2 ln x. Now y = c2 /x, so y (e−1 ) = c2 e = 0 implies c2 = 0. Then
y = c1 and y(1) = 0 gives c1 = 0. Thus y(x) = 0.
For λ = −α2 < 0, y = c1 x−α + c2 xα . The boundary conditions give c2 = c1 e2α and c1 = 0, so that c2 = 0 and
y(x) = 0.
For λ = α2 > 0, y = c1 cos(α ln x) + c2 sin(α ln x). From y(1) = 0 we obtain c1 = 0 and y = c2 sin(α ln x).
Now y = c2 (α/x) cos(α ln x), so y (e−1 ) = c2 eα cos α = 0 implies cos α = 0 or α = (2n − 1)π/2 and λ = α2 =

y (4) − λy = 0, y(0) = 0, y (0) = 0, y(1) = 0, y (1) = 0 is
y = c1 cos αx + c2 sin αx + c3 cosh αx + c4 sinh αx.
The boundary conditions y(0) = 0, y (0) = 0 give c1 + c3 = 0 and −c1 α2 + c3 α2 = 0, from which we conclude
c1 = c3 = 0. Thus, y = c2 sin αx + c4 sinh αx. The boundary conditions y(1) = 0, y (1) = 0 then give
c2 sin α + c4 sinh α = 0
−c2 α2 sin α + c4 α2 sinh α = 0.
In order to have nonzero solutions of this system, we must have the determinant of the coeﬃcients equal zero,

But since α > 0, the only way that this is satisﬁed is to have sin α = 0 or α = nπ. The system is then satisﬁed
by choosing c2 = 0, c4 = 0, and α = nπ. The eigenvalues and corresponding eigenfunctions are then
λn = α4 = (nπ)4 , n = 1, 2, 3, . . . and y = sin nπx. 20. For λ = α4 , α > 0, the general solution of the diﬀerential equation is
y = c1 cos αx + c2 sin αx + c3 cosh αx + c4 sinh αx. 163 3.9 Linear Models: Boundary-Value Problems
The boundary conditions y (0) = 0, y (0) = 0 give c2 α + c4 α = 0 and −c2 α3 + c4 α3 = 0 from which we conclude
c2 = c4 = 0. Thus, y = c1 cos αx + c3 cosh αx. The boundary conditions y(π) = 0, y (π) = 0 then give
c2 cos απ + c4 cosh απ = 0
−c2 λ cos απ + c4 λ2 cosh απ = 0.

is y = c2 sin αx + c3 x. The conditions y(L) = 0, y (L) = 0, then yield
c2 sin αL + c3 L = 0 and c2 sin αL = 0. Hence, nontrivial solutions of the problem exist only if sin αL = 0. From this point on, the analysis is the same

the conditions y(0) = 0, y (0) = 0 yield c1 = 0 and c4 = 0. Next, by applying y(L) = 0, y (L) = 0 to
y = c2 sin αx + c3 x we get the system of equations
c2 sin αL + c3 L = 0

that y = y0 cos 4x + c2 sin 4x. From y1 = y(π/2) = y0 we see that any solution must satisfy y0 = y1 . We
also see that when y0 = y1 , y = y0 cos 4x + c2 sin 4x is a solution of the boundary-value problem for any
choice of c2 . Thus, the boundary-value problem does not have a unique solution for any choice of y0 and
y1 .
(b) Whenever y0 = y1 there are inﬁnitely many solutions.
(c) When y0 = y1 there will be no solutions.
(d) The boundary-value problem will have the trivial solution when y0 = y1 = 0. This solution will not be

32. (a) The general solution of the diﬀerential equation is y = c1 cos 4x + c2 sin 4x. From 1 = y(0) = c1 we see that
y = cos 4x + c2 sin 4x. From 1 = y(L) = cos 4L + c2 sin 4L we see that c2 = (1 − cos 4L)/ sin 4L. Thus,
y = cos 4x + 1 − cos 4L
sin 4L sin 4x will be a unique solution when sin 4L = 0; that is, when L = kπ/4 where k = 1, 2, 3, . . . .

k = 1, 2, 3, . . . .
(c) There will be no solution when sin 4L = 0 and 1 − cos 4L = 0; that is, when L = kπ/4 where
k = 1, 3, 5, . . . .
(d) There can be no trivial solution since it would fail to satisfy the boundary conditions.
33. (a) A solution curve has the same y-coordinate at both ends of the interval [−π, π] and the tangent lines at the
endpoints of the interval are parallel.
(b) For λ = 0 the solution of y = 0 is y = c1 x + c2 . From the ﬁrst boundary condition we have
y(−π) = −c1 π + c2 = y(π) = c1 π + c2
or 2c1 π = 0. Thus, c1 = 0 and y = c2 . This constant solution is seen to satisfy the boundary-value problem.
For λ = −α2 < 0 we have y = c1 cosh αx + c2 sinh αx. In this case the ﬁrst boundary condition gives
y(−π) = c1 cosh(−απ) + c2 sinh(−απ)
= c1 cosh απ − c2 sinh απ
= y(π) = c1 cosh απ + c2 sinh απ
or 2c2 sinh απ = 0. Thus c2 = 0 and y = c1 cosh αx. The second boundary condition implies in a similar
fashion that c1 = 0. Thus, for λ < 0, the only solution of the boundary-value problem is y = 0. 168 3.9 Linear Models: Boundary-Value Problems For λ = α2 > 0 we have y = c1 cos αx + c2 sin αx. The ﬁrst boundary condition implies
y(−π) = c1 cos(−απ) + c2 sin(−απ)
= c1 cos απ − c2 sin απ
= y(π) = c1 cos απ + c2 sin απ
or 2c2 sin απ = 0. Similarly, the second boundary condition implies 2c1 α sin απ = 0. If c1 = c2 = 0 the
solution is y = 0. However, if c1 = 0 or c2 = 0, then sin απ = 0, which implies that α must be an integer, n.
Therefore, for c1 and c2 not both 0, y = c1 cos nx + c2 sin nx is a nontrivial solution of the boundary-value
problem. Since cos(−nx) = cos nx and sin(−nx) = − sin nx, we may assume without loss of generality
that the eigenvalues are λn = α2 = n2 , for n a positive integer. The corresponding eigenfunctions are

In the case when λ = −α2 < 0, the solution of the diﬀerential equation
is y = c1 cosh αx + c2 sinh αx. The condition y(0) = 0 gives c1 = 0.
The condition y(1) − 1 y (1) = 0 applied to y = c2 sinh αx gives
2
c2 (sinh α − 1 α cosh α) = 0 or tanh α = 1 α. As can be seen from

eigenfuntion is y1 = sinh 1.915x. 1 x 2 For λ = 0 the only solution of the boundary-value problem is y = 0.
For λ = α2 > 0 the solution of the diﬀerential equation is y = c1 cos αx + c2 sin αx. The condition y(0) = 0
gives c1 = 0, so y = c2 sin αx. The condition y(1) − 1 y (1) = 0 gives c2 (sin α − 1 α cos α) = 0, so the eigenvalues

are λn = αn when αn , n = 2, 3, 4, . . . , are the positive roots of tan α = 1 α. Using a CAS we ﬁnd that

The ﬁrst two equations enable us to write

c1 (− sin α − sinh α) + c2 (cos α − cosh α) = 0.

cos α − cosh α simpliﬁes to cos α cosh α = 1. From the ﬁgure showing the graphs of 1/ cosh x and cos x, we see that this

be α1 = 4.73004, α2 = 7.8532, α3 = 10.9956, and α4 = 14.1372, and the corresponding eigenvalues are

because of the momentum generated by the force. When the chain is 5 feet high it still has a positive
velocity of about 7.3 ft/s, which keeps it going higher for a while.

it stands to reason, since S2 travels half as fast as S1 , that the polar coordinates of S2 are (3, θ2 ), where θ2
is unknown. In other words, the distances of the ships from (0, 0) are the same and r(t) = 15t then gives
the radial distance of both ships. This is necessary if S1 is to intercept S2 .

Setting θ(t) = 0 we have tan t = π/4 which implies t1 = tan−1 (π/4) ≈ 0.66577.

x + y − Dz = 0.
Multiplying the second equation by D and adding to the third equation we obtain (D + 1)x − (D2 − 1)y = 0.
Eliminating y between this equation and Dx − 6y = 0 we ﬁnd
(D3 − D − 6D − 6)x = (D + 1)(D + 2)(D − 3)x = 0.
Thus

(D +1)x+(D2 +D −1)z = 0. Eliminating z between this equation and (D +1)x−z = 0 we ﬁnd D(D +1)2 x = 0.
Thus
x = c1 + c2 e−t + c3 te−t ,
and, successively substituting into the ﬁrst and third equations, we get

z = c1 + c3 e−t . 184 3.11 Solving Systems of Linear Equations
21. From (D + 5)x + y = 0 and 4x − (D + 1)y = 0 we obtain y = −(D + 5)x so that Dy = −(D2 + 5D)x. Then
4x + (D2 + 5D)x + (D + 5)x = 0 and (D + 3)2 x = 0. Thus
x = c1 e−3t + c2 te−3t
y = −(2c1 + c2 )e−3t − 2c2 te−3t .
Using x(1) = 0 and y(1) = 1 we obtain

−(2c1 + c2 )e−3 − 2c2 e−3 = 1
or
c1 + c2 = 0
2c1 + 3c2 = −e3 .
Thus c1 = e3 and c2 = −e3 . The solution of the initial value problem is

So tank B contains more salt than tank A for t > 13.73 minutes.

27. (a) Write the system as
(D2 + 3)x1 − x2 = 0 −2x1 + (D2 + 2)x2 = 0.
Then
(D2 + 2)(D2 + 3)x1 − 2x1 = (D2 + 1)(D2 + 4)x1 = 0,
and
x1 (t) = c1 cos t + c2 sin t + c3 cos 2t + c4 sin 2t.
Since x2 = (D2 + 3)x1 , we have
x2 (t) = 2c1 cos t + 2c2 sin t − c3 cos 2t − c4 sin 2t.
The initial conditions imply
x1 (0) = c1 + c3 = 2
x1 (0) = c1 + 2c4 = 1
x2 (0) = 2c1 − c3 = −1

11. (a) The auxiliary equation is (m − 3)(m + 5)(m − 1) = m3 + m2 − 17m + 15 = 0, so the diﬀerential equation is

m(m − 1)(m − 2) + bm(m − 1) + cm + d = m3 + (b − 3)m2 + (c − b + 2)m + d = 0.
Since (m − 3)(m + 5)(m − 1) = m3 + m2 − 17m + 15 = 0, we have b − 3 = 1, c − b + 2 = −17, and d = 15.

6A + (5B + 5C) cos x + (−5B + 5C) sin x = 8 + 2 sin x.
Equating coeﬃcients gives A = 4/3, B = −1/5, and C = 1/5. The general solution is

y = c1 + c2 x + c3 ex + c4 x2
yc and yp = Ax2 . Substituting yp into the diﬀerential equation yields −2A = 6. Equating coeﬃcients gives A = −3.
The general solution is
y = c1 + c2 x + c3 ex − 3x2 .
23. The auxiliary equation is m2 − 2m + 2 = [m − (1 + i)][m − (1 − i)] = 0, so yc = c1 ex sin x + c2 ex cos x and

26. The auxiliary equation is 2m3 + 13m2 + 24m + 9 = (m + 3)2 (m + 1/2) = 0 so that
y = c1 x−3 + c2 x−3 ln x + c3 x−1/2 .
27. The auxiliary equation is m2 − 5m + 6 = (m − 2)(m − 3) = 0 and a particular solution is yp = x4 − x2 ln x so
that
y = c1 x2 + c2 x3 + x4 − x2 ln x.
28. The auxiliary equation is m2 − 2m + 1 = (m − 1)2 = 0 and a particular solution is yp = 1 x3 so that

29. (a) The auxiliary equation is m2 + ω 2 = 0, so yc = c1 cos ωt + c2 sin ωt. When ω = α, yp = A cos αt + B sin αt
and
y = c1 cos ωt + c2 sin ωt + A cos αt + B sin αt.
When ω = α, yp = At cos ωt + Bt sin ωt and
y = c1 cos ωt + c2 sin ωt + At cos ωt + Bt sin ωt.
(b) The auxiliary equation is m2 − ω 2 = 0, so yc = c1 eωt + c2 e−ωt . When ω = α, yp = Aeαt and
y = c1 eωt + c2 e−ωt + Aeαt .
When ω = α, yp = Ateωt and
y = c1 eωt + c2 e−ωt + Ateωt .
30. (a) If y = sin x is a solution then so is y = cos x and m2 + 1 is a factor of the auxiliary equation
m4 + 2m3 + 11m2 + 2m + 10 = 0. Dividing by m2 + 1 we get m2 + 2m + 10, which has roots −1 ± 3i. The
general solution of the diﬀerential equation is
y = c1 cos x + c2 sin x + e−x (c3 cos 3x + c4 sin 3x).
(b) The auxiliary equation is m(m + 1) = m2 + m = 0, so the associated homogeneous diﬀerential equation
is y + y = 0. Letting y = c1 + c2 e−x + 1 x2 − x and computing y + y we get x. Thus, the diﬀerential
2
equation is y + y = x.
31. (a) The auxiliary equation is m4 − 2m2 + 1 = (m2 − 1)2 = 0, so the general solution of the diﬀerential equation
is
y = c1 sinh x + c2 cosh x + c3 x sinh x + c4 x cosh x. 191 CHAPTER 3 REVIEW EXERCISES (b) Since both sinh x and x sinh x are solutions of the associated homogeneous diﬀerential equation, a particular
solution of y (4) − 2y + y = sinh x has the form yp = Ax2 sinh x + Bx2 cosh x.
32. Since y1 = 1 and y1 = 0, x2 y1 − (x2 + 2x)y1 + (x + 2)y1 = −x2 − 2x + x2 + 2x = 0, and y1 = x is a solution of the
associated homogeneous equation. Using the method of reduction of order, we let y = ux. Then y = xu + u
and y = xu + 2u , so
x2 y − (x2 + 2x)y + (x + 2)y = x3 u + 2x2 u − x3 u − 2x2 u − x2 u − 2xu + x2 u + 2xu
= x3 u − x3 u = x3 (u − u ).
To ﬁnd a second solution of the homogeneous equation we note that u = ex is a solution of u − u = 0. Thus,
yc = c1 x + c2 xex . To ﬁnd a particular solution we set x3 (u − u ) = x3 so that u − u = 1. This diﬀerential
equation has a particular solution of the form Ax. Substituting, we ﬁnd A = −1, so a particular solution of the
original diﬀerential equation is yp = −x2 and the general solution is y = c1 x + c2 xex − x2 .
33. The auxiliary equation is m2 − 2m + 2 = 0 so that m = 1 ± i and y = ex (c1 cos x + c2 sin x). Setting y(π/2) = 0
and y(π) = −1 we obtain c1 = e−π and c2 = 0. Thus, y = ex−π cos x.
34. The auxiliary equation is m2 + 2m + 1 = (m + 1)2 = 0, so that y = c1 e−x + c2 xe−x . Setting y(−1) = 0 and
y (0) = 0 we get c1 e − c2 e = 0 and −c1 + c2 = 0. Thus c1 = c2 and y = c1 (e−x + xe−x ) is a solution of the
boundary-value problem for any real number c1 .
35. The auxiliary equation is m2 − 1 = (m − 1)(m + 1) = 0 so that m = ±1 and y = c1 ex + c2 e−x . Assuming
yp = Ax + B + C sin x and substituting into the diﬀerential equation we ﬁnd A = −1, B = 0, and C = − 1 .
2
Thus yp = −x − 1

y = c1 ex + c2 e−x − x − 1

W = cos x sin x − sin x cos x = 1. Identifying f (x) = sec3 x we obtain

cos3 x u2 = cos x sec3 x = sec2 x.
Then

u du = 4x dx =⇒ u2 = 2x2 + c1 =⇒ u2 = 4x2 + c2 .

When x = 1, y = 5, so 5 = 1 + c3 and 5 = −1 + c4 . Thus c3 = 4 and c4 = 6. We have y = x2 + 4 and
y = −x2 + 6. Note however that when y = −x2 + 6, y = −2x and y (1) = −2 = 2. Thus, the solution of the
initial-value problem is y = x2 + 4.
38. Let u = y so that y = u du/dy. The equation becomes 2u du/dy = 3y 2 . Separating variables we obtain
2u du = 3y 2 dy =⇒ u2 = y 3 + c1 .
When x = 0, y = 1 and y = u = 1 so 1 = 1 + c1 and c1 = 0. Then
u2 = y 3 =⇒ dy

2
when y = 4/(x + 2)2 , y = −8/(x + 2)3 and y (0) = −1 = 1. Thus, the solution of the initial-value problem is
y = 4/(x − 2)2 .

y(0) = c1 and y(2π) = c1 cos 2πα + c2 sin 2πα, 195 1
75 sin 50t, CHAPTER 3 REVIEW EXERCISES so the condition y(0) = y(2π) implies
c1 = c1 cos 2πα + c2 sin 2πα
which is true when α = √ λ = n or λ = n2 for n = 1, 2, 3, . . . . Since
y = −αc1 sin αx + αc2 cos αx = −nc1 sin nx + nc2 cos nx, we see that y (0) = nc2 = y (2π) for n = 1, 2, 3, . . . . Thus, the eigenvalues are n2 for n = 1, 2, 3, . . . ,
with corresponding eigenfunctions cos nx and sin nx. When λ = 0, the general solution is y = c1 x + c2 and the
corresponding eigenfunction is y = 1.
For λ = −α2 < 0 the general solution is y = c1 cosh αx + c2 sinh αx. In this case y(0) = c1 and y(2π) =
c1 cosh 2πα + c2 sinh 2πα, so y(0) = y(2π) can only be valid for α = 0. Thus, there are no eigenvalues corresponding to λ < 0.
52. (a) The diﬀerential equation is d2 r/dt2 − ω 2 r = −g sin ωt. The auxiliary equation is m2 − ω 2 = 0, so
rc = c1 eωt + c2 e−ωt . A particular solution has the form rp = A sin ωt + B cos ωt. Substituting into
the diﬀerential equation we ﬁnd −2Aω 2 sin ωt − 2Bω 2 cos ωt = −g sin ωt. Thus, B = 0, A = g/2ω 2 , and
rp = (g/2ω 2 ) sin ωt. The general solution of the diﬀerential equation is r(t) = c1 eωt +c2 e−ωt +(g/2ω 2 ) sin ωt.
The initial conditions imply c1 + c2 = r0 and g/2ω − ωc1 + ωc2 = v0 . Solving for c1 and c2 we get
c1 = (2ω 2 r0 + 2ωv0 − g)/4ω 2 and c2 = (2ω 2 r0 − 2ωv0 + g)/4ω 2 , so that

To ﬁnd the minimum length of rod that will accommodate simple harmonic motion we determine the
amplitude of r(t) and double it. Thus L = g/ω 2 .
(c) As t increases, eωt approaches inﬁnity and e−ωt approaches 0. Since sin ωt is bounded, the distance, r(t), of
the bead from the pivot point increases without bound and the distance of the bead from P will eventually

force since the spring is not stretched by the weight of the mass when it is in the equilibrium position (i.e. there
is no mg − ks term in the net force). The only force acting on the mass when it is in motion is the restoring
