Since the forcing term is constant, we look for constant solutions of the non homogeneous equation. This equation has the constant solution y nh 5. Hence the general solution y ( x ) = K e x + 5. In order to satisfy the initial condition: 1 = y (0) = K e + 5 so we must take K = 4. So the solution of the initial value problem is y ( x ) = 4 e x + 5 . 2 . dy dx = 2 y 10 . The homogeneous problem is y = 2 y which has general solution y h ( x ) = K e 2 x . As in the previous problem, the nonhomogeneous has a constant solution as particular solution, namely y nh ( x ) 5. So the general solution for the full problem is y ( x ) = K e 2 x + 5 . 3 . dv dt = 9 . 8 v 5 , v (0) = 0 . In this example, the homogeneous problem has the general solution v h ( t ) = K e t 5 , while, again, the constant solution to the nonhomogeneous problem, derived by setting...
