solving the equation (usually at an integration step).
• A particular solution  a solution with no arbitrary constants in it.
• The general solution  a solution with one or more arbitrary constants that
encompass ALL possible solutions to the DE. Verifying that a function is a solution
• Plug it in and make sure it satisﬁes the equation. Verifying that a function is a solution
