Separation of Variables Modified Malthusian Growth Model Examples General Separable Differential Equation General Separable Differential Equation 1 General Separable Differential Equation: An equivalent form is M ( t ) + N ( y ) dy dt = 0 (1) Theorem Let H 1 ( t ) and H 2 ( y ) be any antiderivatives of M and N with H 0 1 ( t ) = M ( t ) and H 0 2 ( y ) = N ( y ) . Then (1) can be written as a total derivative d dt [ H 1 ( t ) + H 2 ( y )] = 0 , so the general solution of (1) is H 1 ( t ) + H 2 ( y ) = C. Joseph M.

Often this general form does not allow an explicit solution This form of solution should remind you of the total differential from Calculus M ( t ) dt + N ( y ) dy = 0 These result integral curves or level curves for each C This form will prove more useful for Exact DEs , which arise in potential problems from Physics Joseph M.

Mahaffy, h [email protected] i Lecture Notes – Separable Differential Equations — (15/41) Introduction Separation of Variables Modified Malthusian Growth Model Examples General Separable Differential Equation Example 2 - Separable Differential Equation 2 Solution (cont) Since y 2 2 = - 2 cos(2 t ) + C We write y 2 ( t ) = 2 C - 4 cos(2 t ) or y ( t ) = ± p 2 C - 4 cos(2 t ) From the initial condition y (0) = 1 = p 2 C - 4 cos(0) = 2 C - 4 Thus, 2 C = 5, and y ( t ) = p 5 - 4 cos(2 t ) Joseph M.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
