If you run out of room for an answer, continue on the back of the page. Name: 1. (8 points) Let y 1 and y 2 be solutions of the equation ( * ) ay 00 + by + cy = 0 , where a , b and c are fixed constants. Show that for any constants C 1 and C 2 , the function φ = C 1 y 1 + C 2 y 2 is a solution of the above equation. Solution: Since y 1 and y 2 are solutions of (*) we have ay 00 1 + by 1 + cy 1 = 0 and ay 00 2 + by 2 + cy 2 = 0 . Multiplying these equations by C 1 and C 2 respectively, and adding the resulting equations yields the equation ( ** ) ( C 1 y 00 1 + C 2 y 00 2 ) + b ( C 1 y 1 + C 2 Y 2 ) + c ( C 1 y 1 + C 2 y 2 ) = 0 . Observe that C 1 y 1 + C 2 y 2 = ( C 1 y 1 + C 2 y 2 ) = φ and C 1 y 00 1 + C 2 y 00 2 = ( C 1 y 1 + C 2 y 2 ) 00 = φ 00 . Substitute these into (**) to get aφ 00 + bφ + cφ = 0 . This last equation shows that φ is a solution of (*). MAP2302/2331 Exam3 Dr Sin 2. (8 points) Consider two mass spring systems with mass 1kg and spring with stiffness 2N/m. The first is undamped and the second has a damping constant of 2N-sec/m....
