A. Alaca MATH 1005F Fall 2008 1 FIRST ORDER LINEAR DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS A frst order linear diﬀerential equation is an equation oF the Form y ± + P ( x ) y = Q ( x )( * ) where P ( x ) and Q ( x ) continuous Functions on a given interval. Method of solution: We are looking For an integrating Factor I ( x ) such that when we multiply both sides oF the equation (*) by I ( x ), leFt hand side oF the equation would be d dx ( Iy ). I ( x ) y ± + P ( x ) yI ( x )= Q ( x ) I ( x ) d dx ( QI = ± Q ( x ) I ( x ) dx y = 1 I ( x ) ± Q ( x ) I ( x ) dx . How to ±nd I ( x ) : I ( x )( y ± + P ( x ) y d dx ( I ( x ) y ) . I ( x ) y ± + P ( x ) I ( x ) y = I ± ( x ) y + I ( x ) y ± P ( x ) I ( x I ± ( x dI dx P ( x ) dx = dI I ln | I | = ± P ( x ) dx e ln | I | = e ² P ( x ) dx | I | = e ² P ( x ) dx Since we do not need most general integrating Factor, we take

### What students are saying

• 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.
