Unformatted text preview: where is some (known) constant? A) x ( t ) = A cos t + B sin t B) x ( t ) = Ce i t + De-i t C) x ( t ) = A cos t + B sin t + Ce i t + De-i t D) None of these is fully general! E) More than one of these is fine Challenge question: Is there any OTHER general form for this solution? 6 Are sin(x) and cos(x) linearly independent? A) yes B) no C) ??? 7 Are eix and e-ix linearly independent? A) yes B) no C) It depends on omega D) ??? 8 Are e-t and e-4t linearly independent? A) yes B) no C) ???...
