Unformatted text preview: Or X = A 4 sinh x + B 4 Which form to use, depends on the boundary conditions. Recall that the hypebolic sine vanishes ONLY at x = 0 and the hyperbolic cosine is always positive. If we use the following form of the general solution X = A 4 sinh x + B 4 then the derivative X wil be X = A 4 cosh x + B 4 The Frst boundary condition X (0) = yields B 4 = 0 and clearly to satisfy the second boundary condition we must have A 4 = 0 (recall cosh x is never zero thus the coecient A 4 must vanish). Any other form will yields the same trivial solution, may be with more work!!! 18...
