This is a closed book exam. No calculators are allowed. One 3 by 5 note card is allowed. Show all your work. No work, no points! Problem Possible score Your score 1 20 2 13 3 10 4 10 5 10 6 12 7 13 8 12 Total 100 1 1. (10 Points) Solve the equation dy dx = y 1 + x 2 , y (1) = 1 Solution: dy y = dx 1+ x 2 2 pts 2 y = arctan x + c 3 pts 2 = 4 + c 2 pts 2 y = arctan x + 2 4 y = 1 / 2(arctan x + 2 4 ) 2 3 pts 2 2. (10 Points) Consider x 2 dy dx + xy = 1 x , y (1) = 1 . (a) Determine the integrating factor ( x ). = x 2 pts (b) Rewrite the differential equation so that the left hand side is a perfect derivative. d ( x y ) dx = 1 x 2 2 pts (c) Solve for y ( x ). Solution: y = 1 x [ R 1 x 2 + C ] y = 1 /x 2 + C/x y = 1 /x 2 + 2 /x 6 pts 3 3. (15 Points) Consider the following initial value problem dx dt = 10 x 5 x 2 x (0) = C (a) (4 pts) Find the equilibrium solutions and determine whether they are stable or not....
