Unformatted text preview: Analytical Solution of a Nonhomogeneous PDE for Vibration of an Elastic String Additional Note for Homework #2 February 13, 2000 We shall solve a vibration problem of an elastic string spanned on the interval ( ) 0,1 : ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 2 2 2 2 , , , , 1 , u u f x t x t t x = + with the homogeneous initial condition ( ) ( ) ,0 ,0 u u x x t = = and the homogeneous boundary condition ( ) ( ) 0, 1, u t u t = = . To do this, we first assume that the nonhomogeneous term ( ) , f x t can be expressed by ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 1 1 , sin , 2 , sin k k k f x t f t k x f t f t k d = = = Then assuming the solution ( ) , u x t in the following form ( ) ( ) ( ) 1 , s i n k k u x t u t k x = = we shall find appropriate coefficient functions ( ) k u t . Substitution of this into the differential equation yields ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 1 2 2 2 1 1 sin sin , s i n , , , 1 , k k k k...
