Unformatted text preview: Math 20D, Lecture C, Winter 2006 17 February 2006 Quiz 3, version A Name: ID #: Section Time: Show all work clearly and in order, and circle your final answers. You have 20 minutes to take this 25 point quiz. 1. [ 9 points ] Solve the given initial value problem: y 00 6 y + 9 y = 0 , y (0) = 0 , y (0) = 2 Solution: The homogeneous secondorder equation has characteristic equation r 2 6 r + 9 = 0 , which has the doubleroot at r = 3 (3 pts). Therefore, the two linearlyindependent solutions to the equation are y 1 ( t ) = e 3 t , y 2 ( t ) = te 3 t , and the general solution to the equation is given by (3 pts) y ( t ) = c 1 e 3 t + c 2 te 3 t . We then find the constants c 1 and c 2 so that the solution satisfies the initial conditions, i.e. 0 = y (0) = c 1 2 = y (0) = 3 c 1 + c 2 , which has the unique solution at c 1 = 0 , c 2 = 2 . Thus the solution to the initial value problem is (3 pts) y ( t ) = 2 te 3 t . 2. [ 8 points ] Determine a suitable form for the particular solution to Y...
