The basic idea is to move y^3 to the other side. Then you might recognize Left Hand Side is just the derivative of y * t^2 with respect to t. Then you can integrate both sides with respect to t. On the Left Hand Side, you get y * t^2. On the Right Hand Side, you get t*y^3 + C. Then the solution will be curves y(t) that satisfy y*t^2 – t*y^3 = C for some arbitrary C. duongni asked that about 2 hrs ago. I responded to it about half an hour ago. If you want the details, you can scroll down there.

Thank you very, very much, verifry. You're answer to duongi's curiously identical question was immensely helpful.

I'm having a really hard time with the check on this one. would you be willing to walk me through it?

You mean checking the solution to see if it solves the original equation?

I keep ending up with a -3ty^2dy/dt that doesn't fit
anonymous
  • anonymous
would you be willing to walk me through that part as well?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You know what, I think what I wrote isn't the solution anymore. I'm sorry. I thought it checked out, but you're right when you say it doesn't fit.
anonymous
  • anonymous
The problem is that when we integrated y^3, we shouldn't just get ty^3 + C, since y isn't a constant, it's actually a function of t.
anonymous
  • anonymous
How should it look then?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Let me work it out and check it this time before typing anything.
anonymous

I'm trying to check it right now, but the check is not pretty. The basic method of solving it is better explained here: http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/DE/Bernoulli.aspx The idea is to convert it down to an equation in which we can apply the method of integrating factors without having a function of y on the right hand side.
anonymous
  • anonymous
The reason the method of integrating factors didn't work above in my first explanation was because the Right Hand Side had a function of y, so when we integrated it, we can't solve the integral explicitly.
anonymous
  • anonymous
that makes sense
anonymous
  • anonymous
The reason the method of integrating factors didn't work above in my first explanation was because the Right Hand Side had a function of y, so when we integrated it, we can't solve the integral explicitly.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So if we divide both sides by y^3 first, we can make the Right Side not a function of y anymore. Then we try a substitution to convert the differential equation to one in which it's easier to see how we can use the method of integrating factors.
anonymous
  • anonymous
would you be willing to walk me through that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sure.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Starting from t^2 * y' + 2ty = y^3, we want to divide by y^3 to get the RHS to not be a function of y.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So we get t^2 * (y'/y^3) + 2t / y^2 = 1.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now we want to make a change of variables so that it's easier to do the method of integrating factors. Maybe we'd like our new variable to be v, and we want v so that v' is some constant multiple of y'/y^3.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Normally, after solving lots of these problems and generalizing the method, you'd just let v = y^(1-n) because you've seen the pattern. But if you haven't seen the pattern, then we might as well just let v' be equal to y'/y^3
anonymous
  • anonymous
Why can't we use v=y^(1-n)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
We can. We probably should to make it simplify. I was just thinking that if this was the first time you've seen this, letting v = y^(1-n) might seem to pop out of nowhere.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I sort of read through the website explanation, but I just don't pick stuff up very well that way. We could use v=y^(1-n) though
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah let's let v = y^(1-n). Here our n = 3, so let's let v = y^(-2). So then dv = (-2) y^(-3) dy. So dv/dt = (-2) y^(-3) dy/dt.

If you aren't sure of the answer you should visit aplha math help its on google, and shows you the exact answer!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Wow, alpha math help is pretty cool. I didn't know about that either.
anonymous
  • anonymous
what's the url?
anonymous
  • anonymous
http://blog.wolframalpha.com/2009/12/01/step-by-step-math/ But I don't know if it can do differential equations yet.
anonymous
  • anonymous
fair enough
anonymous
  • anonymous
would it be alright if we kept working on my question?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah. From what we had about v' = -2y^(-3) y', we see that (-1/2)v' = y^(-3) * y'
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now we can rewrite our original equation in terms of v's.
anonymous
  • anonymous
We get (-1/2) t^2 * v' + 2t * v = 1.
anonymous
  • anonymous
if you are rewriting the equation in terms of v's wouldn't it be v=1 and then the orginal equation....you are intentfying the v as a variable given already.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i meant the orginal answer!
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't think you totally understand the question, ena, but thank you for trying to help.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now we want to get rid of the coefficient on v' to be able to use the method of integrating factors easily.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Omnideus, do you know the method of integrating factors?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Kinda. I missed one of the lectures on it, so I am a little behind.
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's basically what I tried to do when I first responded to your question. Here it's a little harder since the integrating factor isn't as obvious.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So we have v' - (4/t) v = -2/t^2 after multiplying both sides by (-2/t^2) to get rid of the coefficient on v'.
anonymous
  • anonymous
this is starting to look a little more approachable
anonymous
  • anonymous
Good. Haha.
anonymous
  • anonymous
In the method of integrating factors, we want to express the left hand side as the derivative of the product of some function phi with the function v.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because the derivative of phi * v is phi * v' + phi' * v
anonymous
  • anonymous
Let me call the function phi, let me call it Y. Then we want to find some Y such that when we multiply Y to the Left Hand Side and get Yv' - (4/t) Y*v, we want that to equal Y v' + Y' v.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So what we really want is some function Y such that -(4/t)Y = Y'
anonymous
  • anonymous
Solving this, we get Y = t^(-4), and this is the integrating factor.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Multiplying both sides of v' - (4/t) v = -2/t^2 by t^(-4), we see that the left hand side is the derivative of v*t^(-4), while the right hand side is -2/t^6.
anonymous
  • anonymous
We're pretty much done with solving for v, and once we solve for v, we've solved for y since v = y^(-2).
anonymous
  • anonymous
When we have the left hand side is the derivative of v*t^(-4) and the right hand side is -2/t^6, we can integrate both sides with respect to t.
anonymous
  • anonymous
You think you got it from there?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah, I got an answer that looks correct. Did you do the check? It looks ugly.
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, but we can try wolfram alpha.

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=t^2+*+y%27+%2B+2ty+%3D+y^3
anonymous
  • anonymous
You might have written it a bit differently. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=v%27+-+%284%2Ft%29+v+%3D+-2%2Ft^2 That's the solution to our equation for v. Then v = y^(-2) gives our solution in terms of y.
