First Order Ordinary Differential Equations The first order O.D.E. to be studied in this chapter may be expressed in either 1) derivative form dy dx = f(x,y) 2) differential form M(x,y) dx + N(x,y) dy = 0 Remark : An equation in one of these forms may easily be written in the other form. Examples : 1) Given the equation in derivative form dy dx = ! 2y x , where x is the independent variable and y is the dependent variable,
