Section 2.2: Separable Equations and Equations Reducible to This Form Seperable equations are the simpleset first order differential equa- tions. The equation F ( x ) G ( y ) dx + f ( x ) g ( y ) = 0 can be multiplied by the integrating factor 1 f ( x ) G ( y ) . In doing this we separate the variables and simple integration can solve the differen- tial equation. However, some solutions may have been lost in the process. So, the missing solutions can be found by solving G ( y ) = 0. Any solution the said equation is a solution of the original differen- tial equation which may or may not have been lost in the separation process. Definition 1 The differential equation M ( x,y ) dx + N ( x,y ) dy = 0 is homogeneous if when written in the form dy dx = f ( x,y ) , there exists a function g such that f ( x,y ) can be expressed in the form g ( y/x ) Theorem 1 If M ( x,y ) dx + N ( x,y ) dy = 0 is a homogeneous equation, then the change of variables y = vx transforms into a seperable equation. Proof: Since M ( x,y ) dx + N ( x,y ) dy = 0 is a homogeneous, it may be written in the form dy dx = g ( y x ) Let

So, the differential equation is homogeneous. We can now proceed to solve the equation.
