Unformatted text preview: Section 1.4 25. 30. d . f7), = Ismxdx; lny = —cosx+c; y(x) = e‘c‘m‘+c = Ce'°°“ [2 = J[l+2x); lny = lnx+x2+lnC; y(x) = Cxexp(x2) y x l y(1)=1 implies C=e‘ so y(x) = xexp(x2—1). When we take square roots on both sides of the differential equation and separate variables, we get J% = I dx; J37: x—C; y(X) = (95—02- This general solution provides the parabolas illustrated in Fig. 1.4.5 in the textbook. Observe that y(x) is always nonnegative, consistent with both the square root and the original differential equation. We spot also the singular solution y(x) E O that corresponds to no value of the constant C. (a) Looking at Fig. 1.4.5, we see immediately that the differential equation ( y’)2 = 4y has no solution curve through the point (a,b) if b < 0. (b) But if b 2 0 we obviously can combine branches of parabolas with segments along the x—axis to form infinitely many solution curves through (a,b) . (c) Finally, if b > 0 then on a interval containing (a,b) there are exactly two solution curves through this point, corresponding to the two indicated parabolas through (a,b) , one ascending and one descending from left to right. 31. The formal separation-of-variables process is the same as in Problem 30 where, indeed, we started by taking square roots in ( y')2 : 4 y to get the differential equation y' = 25. But whereas y' can be either positive or negative in the original equation, the latter equation requires that y’ be nonnegative. This means that only the right half of each parabola y = (x — C )2 qualifies as a solution curve. Inspecting the figure , we therefore see that through the point (a,b) there passes (a) No solution curve if b < 0, (b) A unique solution curve if b > O, (c) Infinitely many solution curves if b = 0, because in this case we can pick any c > a and define the solution y(x) = 0 if x _<. c, y(x) = (x— c)2 if x 2 c. —15 —10 —5 0 5 10 15 75 50 25 64. The given rate of fall of the water level is dy/dt = —4 in/hr = —(1/ 10800) ft/sec. With A = 7er and a = m2, Equation (24) is (flx2)(1/10800) = —(7zr2)./2gy = —8nr2fi. Hence the curve is of the form y = kx4, and in order that it pass through (1, 4) we must have k = 4. Comparing J; = 2x2 with the equation above, we see that (8r2)(10800) = 1/2, so the radius of the bottom hole is r 1/(240J3) ft = 1/35 in.

    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.
