Chapter 2 7. In this equation, P ( x ) ≡− 1and Q ( x )= e 3 x . Hence the integrating factor µ ( x )=exp ±Z P ( x ) dx ² =exp ±Z ( 1) dx ² = e x . Multiplying both sides of the equation by µ ( x ) and integrating, we obtain e x dy dx e x y = e x e 3 x = e 2 x d ( e x y ) dx = e 2 x e x y = Z e 2 x dx = 1 2 e 2 x + C y = ± 1 2 e 2 x + C ² e x = e 3 x 2 + Ce x . 9. This is a linear equation with dependent variable r and independent variable θ .Theme thod we will use to solve this equation is exactly the same as the method we use to solve an equation in the variables x and y since these variables are just dummy variables. Thus we have P ( θ )=tan θ and Q ( θ )=sec θ which are continuous on any interval not containing odd multiples of π/ 2. We proceed as usual to Fnd the integrating factor µ ( θ ). We have µ ( θ )=exp ±Z tan θdθ ² = e ln | cos θ | + C = K · 1 | cos θ | = K | sec θ | , where K = e C .
