(2) Find the general solution to the following 2nd order linear inhomogeneous ODEs. (a) y + 2y + 2y = 2 + cos 2t (b) y + 25y = 2 + 3t + 4 cos 2t (c) y  y = t  et . (3) (a) Find the general solution of y + 3y + 2y = te4t . (Look for a particular solution of the form yp = (at + b)e4t .) (b) Use a similar approach as above to find a solution to the differential equation y + 2y + y = t2 e2t . (4) Find the general solution of y + 2y + 2y = e2t sin t. (Look for a particular solution of the form yp = e2t (a cos t + b sin t).) (5) For the following exercises, rewrite the given function in the form y = A cos(t  ) = A cos t  and then plot the graph of this function. (a) y = cos 2t + sin 2t (b) y = cos t  sin t (c) y = cos 4t + 3 sin 4t (d) y =  3 cos 2t + sin 2t. (6) Consider the undamped oscillator mx + kx = 0, x(0) = x0 , x (0) = v0 . (a) Write the particular solution of this initial value problem in the form x(t) = a cos t+ b sin t (i.e., determine a, b, and .). (b) Write your solution in the form x(t) = A cos(t  ) (i.e., determine A). , ...
