Mech 221 Math Problems from Old Tests, Week #2 Brian Wetton September 28, 2010 Notes: This contains all questions on Mech 221 tests and exams from 2006- 09 on the material on direction fields and first order linear differential equations. Some of this material may appear on your tests #3 or #4 this year, depending on how far I get in the lectures. Also, some of the numerical methods material covered in the Old Test Problems last week may appear on your test #2 this year. Remember that, as discussed in class, no solutions will be provided for these questions . Short Question, Exam, 2008: Consider the following linear, scalar differ- ential equation for x ( t ): dx dt + x t = t 2 (a) [2 marks] What is the integrating factor for this equation? (b) [3] Multiply the equation by the integrating factor and solve for x ( t ) with initial conditions x (1) = 0. Short Question, Test #2, 2007: Find the solution y ( t ) of the differential equation y 0 + t 3 y = 0 with initial conditions y (1) = 5. Short Question, Test #4, 2006:

(b) [2] If y (1) = 2 what is the solution y ( t )? Short Question, test #4, 2009: Consider the following linear differential equation for y ( t ): dy dt + ty = t (a) [2 marks] What is the integrating factor for this equation? (b) [3] Multiply the equation by the integrating factor and solve for the general solution y ( t ). 2 Short Question, Exam, 2007: Match the four direction fields and solu-tions plotted below ( y versus t ) to the four differential equations below: (a) y = y cos t 1+2 y 2 (b) y = t 2 ( y-1)( y-2) (c) y = t-3 y (d) y = y 2-t 3...
