Unformatted text preview: Chapter 2 To find the orthogonal trajectories, we must solve this differential equation. To this end, note that this equation is separable and thus 1 1 dx = dy ⇒ x y ⇒ eln |x|−C = eln |y| ln |x| = ln |y | + C ⇒ y = kx, where k = ±e−C . Therefore, the orthogonal trajectories are lines through the origin. (c) Let F (x, y ) = xy . Then we have Fx (x, y ) = y and Fy (x, y ) = x. Plugging these expressions into the final result of part (a) gives x dx − y dy = 0. To find the orthogonal trajectories, we must solve this differential equation. To this end, note that this equation is separable and thus x dx = y dy ⇒ x2 y2 = +C 2 2 ⇒ x2 − y 2 = k , where k := 2C . Therefore, the orthogonal trajectories are hyperbolas. 33. We use notations and results of Problem 32, that is, for a family of curves given by F (x, y ) = k , the orthogonal trajectories satisfy the differential equation ∂F (x, y ) ∂F (x, y ) dx − dy = 0. ∂y ∂x (a) In this problem, F (x, y ) = 2x2 + y 2 and the equation (2.16) becomes ∂ (2x2 + y 2) ∂ (2x2 + y 2 ) dx − dy = 0 ∂y ∂x Separating variables and integrating yield 2y dx = 4x dy ⇒ ⇒ 70 2dy dx = x y ⇒ ln |x| = 2 ln |y | + c1 ⇒ |x| = ec1 |y |2 = c2 y 2 ⇒ ⇒ dx = x 2dy y ⇒ 2y dx − 4x dy = 0.
