Unformatted text preview: Math 201 Fall 2011 Midterm Exam 2 (A) October 28, 2011 1. [5 marks] Find the solution of the initial value problem y 00- 4 y +5 y = 0 , y (0) = 1 , y (0) = 5 The auxiliary equation 2- 4 + 5 = 0 , = 2 i . So the two linearly independent solutions are y 1 = e 2 x cos x , y 2 = e 2 x sin x The general solution is y = c 1 y 1 + c 2 y 2 = c 1 e 2 x cos x + c 2 e 2 x sin x We use the initial values to determine c 1 and c 2 y (0) = c 1 = 1 y = 2 c 1 e 2 x cos x- c 1 e 2 x sin x + 2 c 2 e 2 x sin x + c 2 e 2 x cos x , y (0) = 2 c 1 + c 2 = 5 , c 2 = 5- 2 c 1 = 5- 2 = 3 So, y = e 2 x cos x + 3 e 2 x sin x 2. [5 marks] Find the general solution to y 00 + y- 2 y = 3 e- 2 x The general solution to the homogeneous part: Auxiliary equation: 2 + - 2 = 0 , = 1 , =- 2 Two linearly independent solutions: y 1 = e x , y 2 = e- 2 x Guess for a particular solution: y p = axe- 2 x (we need x multiplied to e- 2 x because e- 2 x is a solution to the homogeneous part).is a solution to the homogeneous part)....
