NAME:
Instructor: Boyce Kovacic Ladd Siegmann
Caprioli Roytburd Herron Good morning! Please circle your instructor's name in the list above. Please answer all questions, showing your work in sufficient detail, and giving reasons where
they are requested. You may use one (twosided) 8.5 by 11 sheet of notes in your own handwriting, but no other aids
(books, notes, calculators, ...) are allowed. PROBLEM # POINTS NAME _________._______________.________ 1. (a) Find the general solution of
y’ — 2y = —1+e_x. Also ﬁnd the solution that satisﬁes the initial condition y(0) = yo. Describe how solutions behave as a: ——+ 00 for different values of go. (b) Find the explicit solution y = (MI) of the initial value problem dy ~ 1
a = (2x 1)y27 9(0) =  and state the interval in Which the solution exists. NAME .._______..__________________ 2. (a) For each of the plots shown below ﬁnd an equation of the form dy/dt = f (y) whose solutions have graphs such as those shown. The equations may be either linear or nonlinear. (b) The position u(t) of a certain spring—mass system satisﬁes the equation
mu" + 3U = 0. Find the value of the mass m for which the motion of the mass has period four. NAME __..____________________.._____ (c) A certain springmass system satisﬁes the equation
(1/2)u” + (2/3)”!1’ + ku = 0. Find the value of the spring constant k for which the system is critically damped. NAME _.____.__ ____________________ _._ 3. (3) Find the solution of the initial value problem 4y”+4y'+y = 0. (b) Find the general solution of y” + 4y = 3 cos 2t. NAME _.__.____________________ 4. For each of the equations in the ﬁrst column identify the corresponding graph or phase portrait from the second column. In each case also give a brief statement of your reason. Recall that a single equation can be changed to a system by letting x1 = y, :52 = y’. X1 (a) ”— §y’+4y=0
