Problem 1 (5+5+10)  Consider  the  first  order  differential  equation  (DE)  ( ) 0 dy ax by bx cy dx + + + =   where   , , a b c  are  constants. a.  Is the  above  equation  linear  or nonlinear?  Explain  your  answer. b. Is there  an  integrating  factor   ( ) x μ  of the  DE?  If so,  find   ( ) x μ . c. Solve the  differential  equation. Problem 2 (5+5+15) For  the  electric,  series  circuit  shown, a. find  the  governing  differential  equation  for the  charge   ( ) q t  at  time   t  in the  circuit  in terms  of  R C L  and   V ( t ) b. Is the  solution  of the  above  differential  equation   stable  or unstable  for  R, C, L  > 0?  Recall  that  a  solution  is unstable  if it becomes  unbounded  as  time   t  increases.  Describe  the  steady  state  behavior  of the   current   I ( t ) for  R, C, L  > 0 and   ) cos( ) ( t te t V t - =  volts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
