Unformatted text preview: SecondOrder Diﬀerential Equations Solve homogeneous secondorder linear diﬀerential equations with constant coeﬃcients. Solve nonhomogeneous such equations using both methods (undetermined coeﬃcients and variation of parameters). Solve simple harmonic motion problems. (Memorize the diﬀerential equation.) Be able to ﬁnd the spring constant. Solve dampedvibrations problems. (Memorize the diﬀerential equation.) Know the three cases: overdamping, underdamping, and critical damping. Solve a ﬁrstorder linear diﬀerential equation using power series. Be able to ﬁnd the recurrence relation and write the solution in terms of c only. Suggested review exercises: #1–14, 18 on p. 1138...
