Unformatted text preview: MATH 251 Fall 2001 Exam I September 25, 2001 ANSWERS: 1. There are infinitely many correct answers for each part. A few examples are given. (a) e.g., y = y 2 or y = ey (b) e.g., y = 0 or y + y + y = 0 2. y (t) = √ 2et − 1 3. (First move everything to the left-hand side of the equation and check to see that this is an exact equation.) Solution: −2x − exy + y 2 = C 4. The initial value problem is Q =8− −t The solution is Q(t) = 400 − 300e 50 . Finally, lim Q(t) = 400 1 50 Q, Q(0) = 100. t→∞ 3 5. First rewrite the equation as y − y = 1, y (4) = −1. t (a) The guaranteed solution interval is (0, ∞). t3 −t + (b) y (t) = 3 64 6. (a) The equilibrium solutions are: y = −1 (stable), y = 1 (unstable), and y = 2 (stable). 7. (a) y (t) = C1 e2t cos t + C2 e2t sin t (b) y (t) = C1 e−3t + C2 te−3t 8. (a) y (t) = 3et − e4t (b) lim y (t) = lim et (3 − e3t ) = −∞ t→∞ t→∞ 9. First substitute y1 (t) and y2 (t) into the equation to verify that they both satisfy it. This shows that both functions are indeed solutions of the given equation. Then calculate their Wronskian, W (y1 , y2 ) = t4 = 0 when t > 0. This shows that they are linearly independent. Therefore, the two functions do, in fact, form a fundamental set of solutions for the given equation. ...
