[20] Solve the following differential equation by finding an integrating factor μ = μ ( x ): ( x + 2) sin y dx + x cos y dy = 0 . Solution: Realize that ∂M ∂y = ( x + 2) cos y = cos y = ∂N ∂x and the differential eqution is not exact. Then p ( x ) = ( x + 2) cos y - cos y x cos y = x + 1 x = 1 + 1 x and μ ( x ) = e p ( x ) dx = e (1+ 1 x ) dx = e x +ln x = xe x . So multiplying by this integrating factor, μ ( x ) = xe x , the following differential equation: ( xe x ( x + 2) sin y ) dx + ( x 2 e x cos y ) dy = 0 is exact. Let Φ = ( x 2 e x cos y ) dy = x 2 e x sin y + ψ ( x ). Then Φ ∂x = ψ ( x ) + 2 xe x sin y + x 2 e x sin y = xe x ( x + 2) sin y = x 2 e x sin y + 2 xe x sin y. So ψ ( x ) = 0 and ψ ( x ) = c a constant. The family of solutions is : x 2 e x sin y + c = 0.

2.) [20] Find the general solution of the differential equation: y - y = 3 t + cos t. Solution: The characteristic equation is r 3 - r = 0. Then we get three distinct roots. r = 0 , +1 , - 1. The homogeneous solution is y h ( t ) = c 1 + c 2 e t + c 3 e - t . To find the particular solution we use the the method of undetermined coefficients. Let y p ( t ) = At + Bt 2 + C cos t + D sin t . Then y p ( t ) = A + 2 Bt - C sin t + D cos t, y p ( t ) = 2 B - C cos t - D sin t, y p ( t ) = C sin t - D cos t.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
