4. Bob decides to go bungee jumping. He attaches an elastic cord to his feet and jumps oﬀ a very tall bridge. At time t = 0, he reaches the bottom of his descent and starts to oscillate. At time t , his acceleration is given by y 00 ( t ) = - y ( t ) , where y ( t ) is his height (relative to some convenient reference point).

Unformatted text preview: a. Show that y ( t ) = sin( t ) and y ( t ) =-cos( t ) both satisfy the given dierential equation. b. Can you nd some other functions that also satisfy the dierential equation? c. In reality, Bobs oscillatory motion will slowly fade away. A more realistic dierential equation would be y 00 ( t ) =-2 y ( t )-2 y ( t ) . Check that y ( t ) = e-t sin( t ) satises this equation. 2...
