We Know How To Solve Homogeneous Equations (With Constant Coefficients) Find Roots of Characteristic Polynomial A r 2 + B r + C = 0 Determine Appropriate General Solution y = C 1 e r 1 t + C 2 e r 2 t y = C 1 e r t + C 2 te r t y = B 1 e a t cos ( b t ) + B 2 e a t sin ( b t ) A y 00 + B y 0 + C y = 0

But what about Non-Homogeneous Equations? A y 00 + B y 0 + C y = g ( t ) Recall that we assumed the solution y = e r t For the homogeneous equation

But what about Non-Homogeneous Equations? A y 00 + B y 0 + C y = g ( t ) For the Non-homogeneous equation, guess a different form of solution. Use g ( t ) as a guide

    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.
