Solving this and substituting back results in a 1-parameter family of implicit solutions: . Getting an explicit solution now is cheap thrills. ______________________________________________________________________ Bonus Noise : The substitution v = y converts the ODE into the first order linear equation (*) Using the integrating factor µ = e x leads to the explicit solution to (*) . Finally, .

TEST1/MAP2302 Page 2 of 3 ______________________________________________________________________ (c) Linear as written. Near θ = 0, an integrating factor is easy to come by: for θ ε (- π /2, π /2). Multiplying both sides of the DE by µ results in the following derivative equation: By integrating, we have Applying the initial condition, it follows that C = 4. Hence, an explicit solution near θ = 0 is given by (d) After minimal algebra, this may be seen as either exact with an easy solution, or homogeneous , of degree 1, with a messier solution. As Exact : The usual prestidigitation leads to A 1-parameter family of solutions: As Homogeneous: The degree of homogeneity is 1. Thus, write the equation in the form of dy / dx = g ( y / x ) by doing suitable algebra carefully. After setting y = vx , substituting, and doing a bit more algebra, you will end up looking at the separable equation .

    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.
